Glenda Jackson makes what is sure to be a triumphant return to actingA quarter of a century after she gave up acting for politics, double Academy Award-winning legend Glenda Jackson returns to play King Lear in Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, alongside an outstanding company including Fiston Barek, William Chubb, Morfydd Clark, Jane Horrocks, Rhys Ifans, Celia Imrie, Simon Manyonda, Harry Melling, Clifford Rose and Gary Sefton.
The story of an old king betrayed by his people, and a kingdom torn asunder by the in-family fighting that follows Lear's descent into madness, this is a firm favourite from Shakespeare's canon, and The Old Vic will no doubt come up with a fresh and incredible production.
