Yes, it's time once again to embark on an epic scene-by-scene, in-depth look at a Shakespeare play. This time, ahead of the National Theater's live broadcast of their production, starring Simon Russell Beale, and the Stratford Festival's upcoming production, starring Colm Feore, not to mention Michael Pennington's current production in New York, I will be taking us through the wasteland of King Lear. 

I'll be posting a new scene from King Lear every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until it's done, with possible occasional interludes not involving sad, insane old men and their vindictive, manipulative daughters, for comic relief. Because a solid month of Lear might drive me insane. 

Onwards!
