Actors from the London Stage perform 'King Lear'

Wed, September 30, 2009 | B. Iden Payne Theatre

7:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Actors from the London Stage returns to The University of Texas at Austin this fall with a production of King Lear.  Employing just five actors to assume all the roles in a Shakespearean drama, Actors from the London Stage performances are minimalist in terms of props and staging, intimate and compelling. The performances emphasize language, characterization, and dramatic energy; the results are startlingly clear and powerful, even magical, for audiences of all ages in a way that large-scale productions in the big theaters of Stratford and London can never be. 

Performances at the B. Iden Payne Theatre Sep 30, Oct 1 & 2 at 7:30 PM.  Call 512-477-6060 or visit for tickets. 

A Winedale performance will be held on Oct 3 at 7 PM.  Visit for ticket information.  Tickets are $10 for UT ID holders and non-UT students; $20 for others.

For more information about these performances, please contact Matt Harvey,, 512-471-8567.
