King Lear

King Lear

Written By: William Shakespeare
Company: Oregon Shakespeare Festival
Cast in Photo: Sydney Walker and Ellen McLaughlin

“Two San Franciscians – the towering old actor Sydney Walker and the intelligent director Richard Seyd – are at the heart and soul of this production’s success. Seyd (who has the expressionistic eye for the visual tableaux of the great silent-movie directors) has conceived a “lear” that is much more than the story of a single man.”

“There is something really special about live Shakespeare, and the current Oregon Shakespeare Festival production of King Lear is living proof.”
