Globe Theatre

Global Opportunities Programme – Globe Theatre King Lear

£5.00

Description

Thursday 5th October 2017 at 2pm

Located on the bank of the River Thames, Shakespeare’s Globe is hugely popular amongst tourists and locals to enjoy some of Shakespeare’s best work. The play on offer for this event is King Lear. King Lear has three daughters, but no sons. Boldly he makes a decision to divide his kingdom among his children, but fails to anticipate the consequences of his actions. His generosity is cruelly repaid and Lear finds himself adrift, wandering homeless and destitute. As he comes to realize the false values by which he has lived, he finally encounters his own humanity. King Lear’s tempestuous poetry is shot through with touches of humour and moments of heart-rending simplicity, as the notion of familial love is questioned and torn apart.

We will meet inside the Queens’ Building by reception at 1.00pm. Staff will then escort you to Mile End tube station by 1.10pm. It is essential that you are on time as we cannot wait for latecomers. Further details will follow at orientation.
