Theater news from the college

Grinnell College will show William Shakespeare’s’ masterpiece, “King Lear,” on Sunday, March 3, as part of Britain’s National Theatre Live encore productions.

WHAT:
Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, “King Lear” sees two aging fathers – one a king, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

This production contains nudity and mature content considered inappropriate for young audiences.

WHEN:
3 p.m. Sunday, March 3

WHERE:
Harris Center Cinema, 1114 10th Ave., Grinnell

SPRING SCHEDULE:
The final National Theatre encore production of the spring semester will be “I’m Not Running” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 14.

TICKETS:
Admission to each production, payable at the door, is $15 for adults and $10 for children. Admission is free to Grinnell College students, faculty and staff.
