The University of Findlay’s theatre program will premier an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy “King Lear” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 6-9 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, in the Egner Center for the Performing Arts, Powell Grimm Theatre.
Tickets are $5 for general admission, $3 for students and senior citizens and free for UF faculty, staff and students. Tickets may be purchased from the UF Box Office, located in the Alumni Memorial Union, or by calling 419-434-5335. Tickets also will be available at the door.
When an aging king divides his domain among his scheming daughters, betrayal, madness and war ensue. Only the mending of familial rifts will offer hope to heal the land. The original adaptation by the director, Christopher Matsos, Ph.D., assistant professor of theatre, preserves the integrity of Shakespeare’s original language while recasting the setting in a modern world.
The ensemble includes Harry Stockton, Alaina Counts, Adrianna Quiñones, Tabitha Kittle, Cameron Lightfoot, Preston Eberlyn, Michael Knight, Dirk Allie, Madeleine Oldenburg, Dan Ross, Andrew Conway, Adrianna Powell Lawrence and Allison Dilbone.
