Veteran film and stage actor Christopher Lloyd stars in King Lear, performed outdoors in the new Spruce Theatre July 2 through August 28

“Nothing will come of nothing, speak again.” —King Lear

The once powerful King Lear chooses to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, and so begins one of Shakespeare’s most moving tragedies. At the crucial point of relinquishing his realm, Lear demands to know which of his daughters loves him the most. His ambitious older daughters answer with false praise and lavish flattery, however his youngest daughter, who does truly love him, answers with honesty. Wildly unsatisfied with her response, Lear’s rage sets in motion catastrophic consequences. Ultimately stripped of his privilege and its trappings, Lear must reckon with his own humanity.

Generously sponsored by Deborah and Bill Ryan.

King Lear will be performed outdoors at the NEW SPRUCE THEATRE.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Nicole Ricciardi
Featuring Christopher Lloyd
The New Spruce Theatre

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
