Shakespeare’s Globe present their first ever live cinema broadcast, as King Lear is broadcast live in over 300 cinemas across the country from their home on London’s Bankside.

‘Love, and be silent’

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.

Broadcast live to cinemas from the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe, this brand-new retelling of one of the Bard’s greatest plays will capture your heart.
