Description In a mythical land of ritual, wealth and power, with a sinister underbelly writhing beneath its gleaming surface, Queen Lear reigns supreme; her word alone is the law. Exercising her authority, she challenges her daughters to compete for her kingdom, triggering a series of events that will shatter her power and reason, but ultimately lead to her enlightenment. Robyn Nevin wears the crown in this timeless story that still has the power to shake our humanity to its roots.
