The Royal Shakespeare Company returns to the Roundhouse with a ten-week season of eight acclaimed Shakespeare productions including King Lear.

Toppled by pride and stripped of all status, King Lear heads into the wilderness with a fool and a madman for company. Shakespeare's great tragedy peels away the trappings of society to reveal the unforgiving truth of the human condition.
