Free tickets for King Lear

The West Yorkshire Playhouse is offering free tickets for King Lear, starring Tim Pigott-Smith, this Wednesday 28 September at 7.15pm.

King Lear abdicates the British throne, to divide his kingdom among his three daughters in proportion to their professed love of him. When Cordelia, his youngest and favourite daughter, refuses to flatter her father; she is disinherited and banished.

King Lear, with its intense exploration of kinship, loyalty, old-age and madness is widely held as the greatest of Shakespeare's tragedies; to some, it is the greatest play ever written.

Award-winning stage, film and television actor Tim Pigott-Smith will perform the title role, directed by West Yorkshire Playhouse Artistic Director Ian Brown
