The Mad King: KING LEAR & THE WINTER'S TALE (Repertory Productions)

Smet Theatrics presents:

“The Mad King”repertory productions of William Shakespeare’s KING LEAR and THE WINTER’S TALE

Both featuring original edits of the scripts by Director Chelsea Smet & starring two powerful dramatic ensembles led by Thomas Clark as King Lear & Dalton Hayse-Tinker as Leontes.

Performed over the same weekend, ‘The Mad King’ repertory theatre event features productions of Shakespeare’s tragedy KING LEAR and problem play THE WINTER’S TALE.

In KING LEAR, the aging King of England demands his three daughters endorse him at court. Only his youngest and favorite daughter, Cordelia, is brave enough to refuse, citing his fading mental and physical health. Lear is set on a rampage against family and friend as his mind continues to deteriorate. Only a few brave souls – including Cordelia, Edgar (the prophesied king), and a mysterious Fool (who may or may not be able to see the future) – can save Lear and the Kingdom.

Similarly, in THE WINTER’S TALE, King of Sicily Leontes destroys his relationship with his entire court when he accuses his wife Hermione of infidelity with the neighboring King of Bohemia. When he demands her child be put to death, a time and tonal jump occurs, new characters are introduced, and a mysterious statue is unveiled.
