Based on the tale of a mythical Celtic king, this Shakespeare tragedy opens with the aging monarch wishing to retire, and deciding to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, giving the largest share to the one who loves him most. Daughter Cordelia, who speaks honestly, is disowned, while the other two compete. Betrayed by his two favored daughters, Lear is driven to madness, setting in motion a chain of events that will lead not only to his daughters’ deaths, but his own.
