Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

Celebrating the First Folio’s visit to UConn, the Connecticut Repertory Theatre presents a play that has fascinated audiences for more than 400 years and stands as Shakespeare’s most towering achievement, King Lear. The aging monarch resolves to retire and divide his kingdom. In the process his family and country are torn apart and so begins Lear’s descent into madness. A once proud monarch is forced to wrestle with morality as he confronts his own mortality. As George Bernard Shaw wrote, “No man will ever write a better tragedy than Lear.”
