Antony Sher: The Lear Diaries

Fri 23 March, 6pm
Running Time: 45 mins

To mark the publication of his new book, Year of the Mad King: The Lear Diaries, Antony Sher will be discussing his experiences of returning to Shakespeare’s King Lear after more than 30 years to perform the title role.

Sher kept a diary, capturing every step of his personal and creative journey to opening night. Year of the Mad King: The Lear Diaries is Sher’s account of researching, rehearsing and performing one of Shakespeare's greatest roles. His honest, illuminating and witty commentary provides an intimate, first-hand look at the development of his Lear and the production as a whole. Chaired by Sue MacGregor.

After the event, Antony Sher will be signing copies of Year of the Mad King: The Lear Diaries. When you buy your copy from the National Theatre Bookshop, you support the work of the NT.
