“The weight of this sad time we must obey,
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
The oldest hath borne most: we that are young
Shall never see so much, nor live so long.”
–Shakespeare’s King Lear
King Lear in a day. Students will read, discuss and enjoy King Lear, and be encouraged to attend the NT Live broadcast at our theaters (including The Grand) starring Ian McKellen.
Required text: Any copy of Shakespeare’s King Lear
Nick Turner is the Executive Director of The Grand and a lifelong learner. His passion for Shakespeare began as a teacher and then as an actor, director, and playwright. He’s confident all students will be enlightened and entertained. Nick recently taught a course on Julius Caesar at Belfast Senior College.
