Based on Shakespeare's King Lear
Malthouse Theatre, The Barbican,
New Adaptation Theatre Co-Production Remount
Epic and provocative, The Shadow King reworks Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy King Lear as a sprawling, blood-soaked tale of two Indigenous families in Australia’s north.
Weaving a parable that echoes our nation’s history, this ambitious new production is truly unmissable theatre of a scale and significance to match the land on which it’s made.
This production toured to the Barbican Theatre.
