I am so excited for Shakespeare in Detroit's 6th production, "King Lear."
It's one of my favorite plays. It's one of those stories that reaches deep down into your humanity and touches those emotions that are sometimes difficult to handle, but are all a part of this experience here on earth.
We have all lost someone close to us. Maybe, some of us have an elderly parent that we are looking out for. Perhaps, there are many of us who have siblings who aren't playing their part in taking care of their elderly parents. Maybe, we've witnessed family members act out and argue over things like who gets the inheritance when a parent passes. These are all experiences we can all relate to at some level.
Shakespeare in Detroit's post-apocalyptic concept for the show is only going to make this tragedy even more raw and impactful.

We open April 9th and run through the 19th at Marygrove College in Detroit.
I hope to see you at the show.
