King Lear — Tragedy and Hope

I just survived a three and one-half hour performance of King Lear, the Shakespearean play that George Bernard Shaw wrote “no man will ever write a better tragedy than Lear.” I’m emotionally drained and physically exhausted. There was war, hate, cruelty, betrayal, greed, and more. A silver lining? I am so impressed and proud of the teen-run theatre company that produced this play and can’t wait to see what these talented, disciplined, and passionate teens do with their lives.
