David Hayman as King Lear, in Shakespeare’s greatest play.

A profound exploration of the human condition and Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy.  Celebrated film, TV and stage actor David Hayman returns to the Citizens in the title role, 33 years after his last appearance here.

“I am a man,
More sinn’d against than sinning”

The ageing King decides to step down from the throne and divide his estate between his three daughters.

Deceived by false promises and rejecting his one faithful daughter, Lear’s former kingdom spirals into chaos as he is driven to madness by the cruel treatment of his own family.
