She is tremendous in the role. In an uncanny way, she transcends gender. What you see, in Deborah Warner’s striking modern-dress production is an unflinching, non-linear portrait of the volatility of old age

Glenda Jackson is tremendous as King Lear. No ifs, no buts. In returning to the stage at the age of 80, 25 years after her last performance… she has pulled off one of those 11th-hour feats of human endeavour that will surely be talked about for years to come

The Daily Telegraph

Jean Kalmans crystalline lighting, Mel Merciers sound design, and the projection work of 59 Productions transmit a visual apocalypse

The New York Times

Warner’s minimalist, modern-dress staging… is absolute theatre; both real and fiction; the thing itself and its shadow
