“How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child”

King Lear explores themes of power, betrayal and excessive pride.

Ageing ruler, Lear, decides to divide his realm into three parts to be shared between his daughters, and then go into retirement. All the daughters need to do is declare their love. Unfortunately, Cordelia does not play along and is banished. His other two daughters do not enjoy his extended stays and he finds himself betrayed and cast aside.

Lear descends into madness and tragedy ensues.
