Queen Lear disposes of her kingdom between two of her three daughters based on their overt praise for her. The story twists and turns as we follow the Queen's descent into madness which brings tragic consequences for all. Set in an oppressive futuristic society Queen Lear will focus on economic inequality, the crippling effects of the media, and what is considered privatized and what is not.

Performances were on March 16-17 and 22-24 at 8pm and March 18 at 4pm in La Sala de Puerto Rico (W20-202).
