As part of the MultiCulture Britain series, the British Council and Multikino invite you to retransmission of the play 'King Lear'.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two aging fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Jonathan Munby directs Ian McKellen in this ‘nuanced and powerful’ ('The Times') contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving, and shocking play.

Author: William Shakespeare

Cast: Ian McKellen (King Lear), Anita-Joy Uwajeh (Cordelia), Lloyd Hutchinson (Fool), Sinéad Cusack (Earl of Kent)

Director: Jonathan Munby 

Duration: 225 minutes
