King Lear

by William Shakespeare

Lear is retiring. He cannot stand in the way of progress. But dividing his vast empire between his daughters comes at a cost. Now he must navigate a treacherous path leading to refuge or madness.


Yard Players present a new interpretation of an epic story of loss, growing old and new beginnings.

Set in a criminal world where family ties are stretched thin and business brings blood, we visit the stark reality of an ever divisive dog-eat-dog society.


He’s mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf.


This production marks the exciting debut of  Yard Players, a new vibrant company, creating vivid, accessible productions of classics.
