SEWARD PARK – This week, Freehold Theatre will bring Shakespeare’s King Lear, directed by Robin Lynn Smith, to the Rainier Valley.
“I am inspired by the human struggle to know ourselves, and the attempt to look fiercely at the truth of our existence – framed by limits of isolation, separateness, bewilderment, blindness; and the limits of our time here: aging and death,” said Smith.
King Lear is a story of brothers, sisters, fathers, daughters and sons who have the trappings of their lives ripped away.
The production will include live musical accompaniment with a score composed by Gino Yevdjevich of Kultur Shock, set design by Montana Tippett and puppets by puppet master Annett Mateo.
The Rainier Valley performance is scheduled for Mon., July 2, at 6:30 pm, at Seward Park Amphitheatre. Tickets are free but reservations are requested.
