William Shakespeare's King Lear
Amy Seham, Director | Rob Gardner, Guest Artist

May 6, 12, & 13 | 7:30 pm
May 7 & 14 | 2:00 pm

On the wings of soaring Elizabethan poetry, Shakespeare confronts utterly contemporary questions of identity. We witness dramatic struggles between power and madness, parents and children, honesty and betrayal. At its core, the play explores our eternal battle with that unrelenting adversary " time. In the title role, Professor Emeritus Robert Gardner will join our talented Gustie actors in what many critics call Shakespeare's greatest masterpiece.
