Jonathan Munby’s production of King Lear, currently running at the Duke of York’s Theatre having transferred from Chichester and starring Sir Ian McKellan, feels astonishingly apt for today’s climate of geo-political posturing, with a map of Europe being ripped apart by Lear at one point.

We sat down and talked to some of the women in the cast about a number of unique aspects to this production, including the gender-swapping of the role of Kent played by Sinead Cusack. 

Kirsty Bushell, Claire Price and Anita-Joy Uwajeh, who play Lear's daughters had more to offer including a number of cast changes. Nearly half of the company are new to the production which can be tricky. We also touched upon the political aspects of the play - something which Sinead Cusack also had a bit to say about.
