King Lear

Front Cover
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation/Societe Radio-Canada, 2000
"Know that we have divided in three our kingdom." With these words. King Lear sets into terrifying motion the events that lead to his downfall and madness and to the death of his one true daughter, Cordelia. Shakespeare's great heart-wrenching tale illuminates the mind and heart of an eclipsed king, a man who becomes just another player on a stage of fools. This production was adapted for radio by noted Canadian playwright Michael Cook and stars John Colicos, who has made the role his own over four decades.
