King Lear to transfer to the West End

We are delighted to announce a West End transfer for Jonathan Munby’s critically-acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s King Lear, with an ensemble of actors including Ian McKellen as Lear. Following its sold-out run at the Minerva last autumn, King Lear will run for a strictly limited engagement at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London from 11 July to 3 November 2018.

King Lear will be the third Festival 2017 production to transfer to London this year, following the musical Caroline, Or Change at Hampstead Theatre (12 March – 21 April) and James Graham’s Quiz at the West End’s Noël Coward Theatre (31 March – 16 June).

Tickets for King Lear will be on sale from 12 noon on 8 February via, including 100 tickets per performance available under £30. £5 tickets will be available as part of Chichester Festival Theatre’s Prologue scheme for 16-25 year olds, which can be purchased on the day of performance in person from the Duke of York’s Box Office, when proof of age ID will be required.
