King Lear is universally acknowledged as one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragic roles. Christopher Plummer has played the role under the direction of Sir Jonathan Miller (who, has directed it six times). Lear was, in fact, a real English king, who lived 800 years before Christ.
The historic story has a happy ending, but Shakespeare gave his theatrical interpretation a dreadful dénouement that has been shocking audiences for 400 years.
