I Dare You

When? Thursday 27 September-Saturday 29 September
Where? Nottingham Playhouse
What? Written by Tom Powell and directed by Beth Shouler, this hard hitting family drama comes with warnings about its violent and disturbing content.

King Lear is being broadcast live from the Duke of York’s Theatre, starring none other than Sir Ian McKellen (that’s right! The one that’s in Lord of the Rings and X-Men.) Shakespeare’s famous tragedy is a proper good ‘un full of all the classic Shakespearean-ly tragic stuff like death, madness and the classic fall from grace. Prepare yourself for a moving performance, but maybe read those York Notes beforehand.
