Publisher's Summary

Blackstone Audio is proud to present the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's 2013 production of King Lear, Shakespeare's dark yet brilliant tragedy of madness and betrayal, directed by artistic director Bill Rauch. This stunning work of audio theater, fully dramatized with performances by the OSF cast, is a must-listen.
Ambition is thickerthan blood …
King Lear is ready to turn his realm over to his three daughters. His plan is simple: Give the biggest piece to the daughter who loves him most. But honeyed words and hubris blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, plunging king and kingdom into a hell of treachery, madness, and unspeakable acts - with consequences that reveal the worst and best in human nature.

Distracting Sound Effects

The futuristic sound effects and the exaggeration of some of the "performers" killed this classic. I only made it halfway through.

Hard to follow

Just couldn't get into it. Plain and simple. Couldn't follow the story as much as I thought I would.
