Reginald Edwards – King Lear

Reginald will be appearing in the role of Burgundy in King Lear at Royal & Derngate Northampton from 1st-23rd April. The production then embarks on a UK tour until 2nd July 2016.

An ageing tyrant’s whimsical decision to divide his kingdom tears his family apart, sparks catastrophic civil war and destroys all that he has.

Driven from his home, King Lear endures madness, blindness and great suffering as he battles a great storm. Yet with madness he finds reason, from blindness he gains new sight, after betrayal he discovers loyalty and through his suffering a better world emerges.

Two-time Olivier Award nominee Michael Pennington leads a cast of fourteen distinguished actors in Philip Franks’ epic new interpretation of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy which marks the 400th anniversary of his death.
