Summary
King Lear has three daughters, but no sons. Boldly he makes a decision to divide his country among his children, but fails to anticipate the consequences of his actions. His generosity is cruelly repaid and Lear finds himself adrift, homeless and destitute. As he comes to realise the false values by which he has lived, he finally encounters his own humanity. Shot through with touches of humour and moments of heart-rending simplicity, as the notion of familial love is questioned and torn apart
