King Lear to be broadcast to cinemas by NT Live

We’re delighted to announce that NT Live will broadcast the Chichester Festival Theatre production of King Lear with Ian McKellen live from the West End to cinemas nationwide and internationally on 27 September. Tickets will be on sale soon.

King Lear will be our first collaboration with NT Live and our first broadcast under the leadership of Artistic and Executive Directors Daniel Evans and Rachel Tackley. This will be a great opportunity for a wider audience to see Jonathan Munby’s hugely acclaimed production after its sold out Minerva run.

Joining Ian McKellen and original cast members Sinéad Cusack, Kirsty Bushell and Danny Webb at London’s Duke of York’s Theatre are James Corrigan (Edmund), Lloyd Hutchinson (Fool), Claire Price (Regan), Luke Thompson (Edgar) & Aneka-Joy Uwajeh (Cordelia).
