Honest Pint Theatre partnership with Sweet Tea Shakespeare presents William Shakespeare's KING LEAR

  • 7617 Percy Court Raleigh, NC, 27613 United States (map)

“I am a man more sinned against than sinning.” Shakespeare’s monumental look at an aging monarch, full of hubris and on the precipice of senility, as he divides his kingdom among his three daughters. In turn, they break his heart, resulting in a loss of country, loss of family, loss of self, and loss of sanity; a sublime exploration of foolishness in all its forms.

Sweet Tea Shakespeare imagines, enacts, and embraces theatre in the spirit of Shakespeare and early modern performance as it seeks to employ the ingenuity and drive behind Shakespeare’s own company through productions, workshops, training, music, and community engagement.
