King Lear

13th July 2022 - 27th August 2022

Location: Various locations across Cornwall all summer

This summer, Miracle Theatre presents Shakespeare’s most elemental and passionate play at elemental outdoor venues across Cornwall. King Lear is an exquisitely dark tale about a family squabble that grows out of all proportion, blowing up into a storm of deadly force.

This fresh and fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare’s text – pared down to its bare essentials – tells a shocking, yet tender, story of ageing and madness, fuelled by ambition and fired by betrayal. Shakespeare loved to weave theatrical magic out of tragedy in a way that is never far from farce, making King Lear ripe for Miracle’s unique treatment!
