King Lear Comes to Murphys, CA!

Murphys, CA... ***Opening night of King Lear POSTPONED to Friday, September 2nd due to COVID-19*** King Lear performance begins Friday, September 2nd, 2022 to September 17th, 2022 at 7 PM – 10 PM in Murphys, CA in its debut production at Murphys Creek Theatre. Murphys Creek Theatre, known for producing Shakespeare’s greatest works over the past 30 years, is finally bringing the thunderous King Lear to its stage.



Murphys Creek Theatre, known for producing Shakespeare’s greatest works over the past 30 years, is finally bringing the thunderous King Lear to its stage.

Revenge, rage, grief, and delusion storm upon the boards of Murphys Creek Theatre as Don Bilotti takes the stage as one of theater’s greatest tragic heroes, King Lear. Robbie Allen returns to direct Shakespeare’s classic drama about a King ready to turn his realm over to his three daughters. His plan is simple: Give the grandest slice of his kingdom to the daughter who loves him most. But honeyed words and hubris blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, plunging king and kingdom into a hell of betrayal, madness, and unspeakable acts—Lear explores what happens when man’s law and nature's law collide. When man’s ego and lust for power are met with the natural laws of the universe and explores what happens when we humans are left with nothing. With consequences that reveal the worst and best in human nature.

First planned for MCT’s 2020 season, both Robbie Allen and Todd Thomas have been eager to bring this production to life after two years of being dark.

WHEN:  September 2nd - September 17th, Curtain at 7:00 pm Friday - Saturday, 2 pm on Sundays: Final performance is on Saturday, September 17th at 7pm

WHERE: Murphys Creek Theatre, 580 S. Algiers Street, Murphys, CA 95247

Ticket prices range from $20-$32 and group tickets are available at www.murphyscreektheatre.org
