Summary
"King Lear has ruled for many years. As age begins to overtake him, he decides to divide his kingdom amongst his children, living out his days without the burden of power. A proud man, he allows vanity to cloud his judgement, believing that he can relinquish the crown, but enjoy the same authority and respect he has always known. Misjudging his children's loyalty, he soon finds himself stripped of all the trappings of state, wealth and power he had taken for granted. Alone in the wilderness, he is left to confront the mistakes of a life that has brought him to this point"--Container
