We are starting off with a bang! California Stage presents King Lear, by William Shakespeare

California Theatre Creations is thrilled to announce the upcoming production of “King Lear”, a Shakespearian theatrical experience that promises to captivate audiences with its retelling of this masterpiece.

King Lear, exhausted from years of war, divides his power and land between his daughters Goneril and Regan, who pay fawning homage to gain favor, while harboring deep resentment against both their father and their younger sister. The King's third daughter, Cordelia, is offered a third of his kingdom also, but refuses to be insincere in her praise and affection. As a result, she is disowned, but weds the noble King of France. Meanwhile, the villainous Edmund, illegitimate son of the Earl of Gloucester, plots against his father and his legitimate half-brother Edgar. Lear, accompanied by his loyal Fool and the disguised Earl of Kent, wander the moors, Lear slowly going mad.  Gloucester, supporting Lear against his two evil daughters, is caught, and punished horribly. Cordelia returns to try to save her father and a war begins.
