  • "King Lear, which many critics consider the most evocative of Shakespeare's tragedies, deals with the twin themes of blindness and blood. Lear, who is unwilling to distinguish the true motives of his three daughters, banishes his honest daughter, Cordelia, and unwisely awards the realm to Goneril and Regan and their husbands. The ensuing treachery eventually causes Lear to lose control of his mind, but in his complete destitution, he begins to know himself as a human being. Bob Jones Jr., who was an accomplished and respected Shakespearean actor, brings to the role of Lear a wealth of stage experience, which makes this 1991 Classic Players production both convincing and compelling. - Container."
