King Lear marks one of four main stage plays for BlueBarn Theatre’s 33rd season.

The tragedy attributed to Bill Shakespeare is critically beloved, with countless stage adaptations spanning five centuries. King Lear revolves around the titular main character who, faced with aging, must divide his kingdom between three daughters – though nothing, of course, goes smoothly.
