This event is in the past.

Considered by some to be Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy; it is the story of an old king who has grown tired of responsibilities and hands the reins of government over to his daughters. However, he still expects to retain his authority, but without the power to exercise it. It does not take long for this dysfunctional family to fall apart - the two elder daughters turn against him and the third, his youngest and best loved, is disinherited and he is left to try and survive a...lmost alone. It is the story of his decline into madness and eventual death. Or is it? Could it be the story of a King who, at the end of his life, discovers more lasting values as a man?
