BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard.

Some of the most stirring scenes Shakespeare ever wrote vibrate with powerful resonance in this grippingly dramatic radio production. Tortured madness, pure evil, and the fatal struggle for power grip the listener until the final, shockingly tragic conclusion.

Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. Download and start listening now!

    " An amazing and intense tale of Shakespeares. I will never forget reading the scene where it's a monologue of Lear's and he's cursing the skies. "

    " Re-read this Shakespearean classic to fully prepare for Saturday's performance of "King Lear" by Sir Derek Jacobi. I can't wait to see him in this role! "

    " This was required reading in my freshman comp class at Bellarmine. This play was included in our literature anthology, "The Experience of Literature" by Lionell Trilling. "

    " I'd give Lear 4.5 stars if I could. Not five, because only books that mean a lot to me personally get five; but this is a gorgeous play, and definitely in my top five of Shakespeare's works. "
