What happens when a King abuses his absolute power? When he betrays and condemns his faithful child?

King Lear
by William Shakespeare

This masterful tragedy takes you on a journey of power, betrayal, misogyny, and reconciliation. Experience the consequences and controversy when a King prefers flattering falseness in favor of the truth he needs to hear.

One of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, King Lear features James Pickering* in the title role, Malkia Stampley*, Jonathan Wainwright* and a whole cast of top-notch Milwaukee area talent. Directed by the inimitable Ms. Lisa Gaye Dixon.

Free Shakespeare in the Park celebrates it’s 9th season with 12 performances from July 5 through July 21, 2018. No reservations required**. You may select your seats 2 hours before the play begins. See dates and times on the front of this card. For more details, visit or call (262)498 – 5777.
