King Lear image

Following on from the success of last year’s critically acclaimed debut production of Hamlet, Wells Theatre Company are returning to The Bishop’s Palace to perform another William Shakespeare masterpiece, King Lear.

The play will be performed in Promenade, a format which proved such a hit with residents and visitors walking with the actors from scene to scene through rooms and grounds of the Palace.

King Lear has ruled for many years. As age and ill judgement overtake him, he divides his kingdom amongst his children. Misjudging their loyalty, he finds himself stripped of all the trappings of state, wealth and power that had defined him.
