Rubicon Theatre presents a timely and trenchant production of Shakespeare’s tragedy KING LEAR as the centerpiece of the company’s 20th Anniversary Season. Directed by Co-Founder James O’Neil, the production features a twenty-member cast led by acclaimed actor and company member George Ball, who has starred in previous Rubicon productions of All My Sons, Man of La Mancha, and Jacques Brel… (New York, L.A., and international companies of the latter). KING LEAR is the story of a narcissistic ruler who craves adulation, exiles those who question his authority, and neglects those on the fringes of society. Considered by many to be Shakespeare’s greatest masterpiece, KING LEAR is a haunting and epic saga of love, greed, family strife, and civil war. Rubicon’s production of KING LEAR begins previews on March 14, 2018 and opens on Saturday evening, March 17 at Rubicon Theatre Company’s intimate home, a former historic church located in Ventura’s Downtown Cultural District. Opening night after-party will be held at Rhumb Line Restaurant at Ventura Harbor. The production continues Wednesdays through Sundays through April 1.
