A Noise Within presents King Lear, opening on February 15 and running through May 6.
The gut-wrenching devastation of Lear encompasses more than one man’s trajectory of power and hubris; it is an affecting, unflinching chronicle of a family as it disintegrates around the mental illness of its patriarch.
“Who is it that can tell me who I am?”—King Lear
Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, the play stars Geoff Elliott as King Lear, and his daughters Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia are played by Trisha Miller, Arie Thompson, and Erika Soto respectively.
