Coming up

Miracle Theatre presents Shakespeare’s most elemental and passionate play.

King Lear is an exquisitely dark tale about a family squabble that grows out of all proportion, blowing up into a storm of deadly force.

This fresh and fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare’s text – pared down to its bare essentials – tells a shocking, yet tender, story of ageing and madness, fuelled by ambition and fired by betrayal.

Shakespeare loved to weave theatrical magic out of tragedy in a way that is never far from farce, making King Lear ripe for Miracle’s offbeat treatment!

Recommended age 12+

Season starts with 4 residences in Cornwall

26–30 May | Restormel Castle

2–6 June | Enys Gardens

15–19 June | Minack Theatre

1–4 July | St Agnes Beacon
