Lear’s daughter in a man’s world.
Set seven years before Shakespeare’s legendary play King Lear, Queen Goneril is seen through the eyes of his three daughters fighting a patriarchal system at odds with their aspirations. In Goneril, Regan and Cordelia we find a natural-born leader, a boundary pusher and a reluctant peacekeeper trying to survive and find their voices in their father’s kingdom. But how can they when no one is listening? Queen Goneril brings the background into focus, and a previously deafening silence to an irresistible crescendo.
