Caught in a carousel of memory, the head of a dysfunctional royal family grapples with power-hungry children and the threat of losing the empire he created. Real and imagined worlds coalesce, creating a political and personal horror that threatens to swallow the mind of the monarch. February 23 through March 26, the incomparable Patrick Page (Hadestown, The Gilded Age) returns to Shakespeare Theatre Company as the once-revered king caught in an emotional hurricane ravaging his home, head, and heart.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Simon Godwin
