With performances by world famous award winning Shakespearean actors, The Shakespeare Series has recaptured the Elizabethan flavor of Shakespeare's own Globe productions by staging them just as they were seen in the 16th century. The renowned story of mistaken love, familial deceit and murder, Lear, the aging King of Britain, has chosen to lay aside the care of the kingship and divide his kingdom between his three daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia. Goneril and Regan speak before the court with expressions of love while Cordelia says she can find nothing to say. For this lack of display, she is disinherited. It later becomes evident that her love is shown in her actions, not mere words. Featuring Mike Kellen, David Groh, Kitty Winn, Darryl Hickman and Charles Hickman. Grades 9-12. 182 minutes on DVD.
