Sunday, July 27 will be the final performance of the two week run of King Lear by ARTFARM in the Grove on the campus of Middlesex Community College. Rani Arbo and Greg Ryan open the evening at 6 pm, followed by King Lear, starring John Basinger as Lear, at 7 pm.
We are expecting another beautiful evening, but in the off chance of inclement weather the performance will be held inside Chapman Hall on the MxCC campus.
Bring your lawn chairs, a picnic, a bottle of wine and a sweater and enjoy a fabulous 45 minute set by Rani and Greg before checking out ARTFARM's most successful production yet. Audiences are coming out in record numbers, and they have been getting larger every night as the buzz grows around the State about this incredibly powerful and moving performance of one of the world's great tragedies.
A few photos by Bill DeKine give a sense of the action. Children are welcome (and many have come and loved it!), but the play does contain some graphic violence, sexuality, partial nudity and, of course, great sword fights!
See you in the Grove Sunday night! Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students.
