Admission includes a complimentary reception after the show. Returning to its roots of staged readings, the San Diego Shakespeare Society will present William Shakespeare's tragedy "King Lear" on September 22, 2019, directed by Thomas Haine. In Shakespeare's study of family dynamics, the aging King attempts to divide his kingdom based on how much his daughters profess their love. Things do not go as planned: factions and plotting become evident within families, with siblings, parents, and confidants warring and many searching for hope."It's the greatest of all Shakespeare's plays. A story of pride, estrangement, reconciliation, self-discovery, forgiveness and redemption. It is a testament to the power and endurance of love-a message that speaks comfort to a world filled with anxiety and fear," says director Thomas Haine.The one-night-only reading is a fundraiser for the Society and will be held at 7:00 pm at the Westminster Theatre in Point Loma. See one of Shakespeare's masterpieces come to life in the hands of some of San Diego's finest actors and "bardophiles"!In the title role of King Lear is San Diego actor CHARLIE RIENDEAU, the Assistant Director for the two Shakespeare Festivals at The Old Globe and for the first two Educational tours.
