I don’t like this story. I studied it at school and somehow feel I have live through part of this theme.
However, having seen our own Geoffrey Rush in the title role (I don’t care what they say about him or who he touches, he is our leading actor – deal with it), I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see Sir Ian McKellan in the role. And close up too as I was in the front row.
You know the story so I leave you with a few images. McLellan was masterful, Goneril well-dressed, Regan a bitch and Cordelia was black.
