Oregon Shakespeare Festival 2013 Season in Review – The Thomas Theater

The Thomas Theater

King Lear

Bill Rauch directed King Lear, the play that all fans of Shakespeare feel is neck and neck with Hamlet for best Shakespearean play. By that, meaning, the most tragic, lethal and the most like Opera.

The play is gruesome with power struggles, lust, killing, eyeballs plucked
