King Lear at The Guthrie & Back Stage Tour

Wednesday, March 8      Program #7201.168       $69 
Shakespear’s epic tragedy on Wurtele Thrust Stage is King Lear.  After years of ruling Britain in peace, a respected King Lear decides to relinquish his crown and divide his kingdom among his three daughters, but when their love and loyalty falter, so does Lear’s sanity.  King Lear is a gripping portrait of fathers, daughters and a once-mighty ruler thwarted by his own hubris and betrayed by a vanishing mind.  Also include in this great trip is a 45 minute backstage tour to learn from the Guthrie artists and staff how a production is created – from literary background to set and costume design to the staging of the play.  A box lunch (choice of sliced roast beef, turkey or vegetarian sandwich) is also included in this fantastic tour.
