From Cal Shakes: Affairs of state, family, and soul entwine in this masterful, epic tale of a king who loses everything— including his sanity—only to experience the power of revenge, betrayal, and ultimately, redemption. Nationally renowned director Amanda Dehnert—whose credits include the groundbreaking 2011 production of Julius Caesar at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival—directs two-time Tony award nominee Anthony Heald as Shakespeare’s profound tragic hero.
