“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.
