The show has been produced for the Royal Shakespeare Company and will be shown at Weston Odeon.

In William Shakespeare’s play, King Lear has ruled the realm for many years, but as he gets older, he decides to split his kingdom between his three daughters.

But he misjudges his children’s loyalty and finds himself alone in the wilderness and confronting his mistakes.

King Lear is often described as one of Shakespeare’s greatest parts, and Sher has vast stage experience and is a two-time Laurence Olivier Award-winner.

He has been part of the Royal Shakespeare Company since 1982.

King Lear will be at Weston-super-Mare’s Odeon on October 12 at 7pm.

The Mercury has teamed up with Odeon to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the screening.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final. By entering, you agree to be contacted by Archant.
