El Rio Theatre Project presents Shakespeare’s King Lear

The El Rio Theatre Project will present its 8th Annual Shakespeare in the Park with William Shakespeare’s King Lear at the Himmel Park Outdoor Amphitheatre, 1000 N. Tucson Blvd.  Performances are scheduled for Sept 19-21, 25-28 & Oct. 2-5.  Curtain time is 7 p.m. for all performances; the event is free to the public, with a suggested donation of $5.  Bring a blanket, a picnic basket and the whole family, and enjoy an evening of Theatre in the park.

King Lear is ready to turn his realm over to his three daughters. His plan is simple: Give the biggest piece to the daughter who loves him most. But honeyed words and hubris blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, plunging king and kingdom into a hell of treachery, madness and unspeakable acts – with consequences that reveal the worst and best in human nature.
