  • Wilmington, NC's award-winning Shakespeare production company, Dram Tree Shakespeare, presents an innovative take on the enduring classic: King Lear. Guest director Jamie Rocha Allan, bringing an extensive Shakespearean background-- including time with the Royal Shakespeare Company in England, will immerse the audience in a world of literature, emotion and action as the aging King Lear decides to divide his kingdom among his daughters, two of whom reward his generosity by turning him out and seeking his death. Lear then wanders homeless and destitute as chaos, villainy and pagan decay surround him. Finally, aided by his one loving daughter, he begins to understand what it is to be human.
