at Duke of York's Theatre
Following its sold-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, Jonathan Munby’s explosive revival of Shakespeare’s epic tragedy moves to the West End with a celebrated cast led by Ian McKellen as the embittered monarch in a fractured kingdom.
With its intimate staging, this contemporary, dystopian production places audiences at the centre of the storm as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with shocking ends.
