National Theatre Live

Screening at

McChesney Scott Dunn Auditorium

750 Marguerite Dr, Winston-Salem, NC 27106 [Map & directions]

On Sunday February 10 at 2:00pm

Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.
Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King,
one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless
ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.
