Haluk Bilginer who has invested tremendous time and energy both as an actor and as a translator to the works of Shakespeare, plays the role of King Lear, Shakespeare’s protagonist who ‘painted his tragedy with his own hands.’
Muharrem Özcan directs this multi-layered classic play about the division of land and political power. This tragedy that plagues King Lear, his daughters and other power groups in the country, is interpreted with the grotesque effects at the play’s core.
