King Lear Film Poster


Alan Cooke's production of Shakespeare's classic play. When King Lear (Mike Kellen) decides to divide his kingdom between his three daughters, he is outraged that his youngest, Cordelia (Kitty Winn), refuses to proclaim her devotion to him (even though, of the three, it is she alone who loves him). As a result, Lear cedes control to the scheming Goneril and Regan, with disastrous results for his kingdom and himself.
