Actors from the London Stage perform 'King Lear'

Sat, October 3, 2009 | Winedale Theatre Barn

7:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Actors from the London Stage returns to The University of Texas at Austin this fall with a production of King Lear.  Employing just five actors to assume all the roles in a Shakespearean drama, Actors from the London Stage performances are minimalist in terms of props and staging, intimate and compelling. The performances emphasize language, characterization, and dramatic energy; the results are startlingly clear and powerful, even magical, for audiences of all ages in a way that large-scale productions in the big theaters of Stratford and London can never be. 

A Winedale performance will be held on Oct 3 at 7 PM.  Visit for ticket information.  Tickets are $10 for UT ID holders and non-UT students; $20 for others.
