The Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle and the Actors’ NET of Bucks County present two special performances of William Shakespeare’s “King Lear.”

King Lear is ready to turn his realm over to his three daughters. His plan is simple: Give the biggest piece to the daughter who loves him most. But honeyed words and hubris blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, plunging king and kingdom into a hell of treachery, madness and unspeakable acts—with consequences that reveal the worst and best in human nature. This epic tragedy by the most famous playwright in the English language is staged in the spectacular outdoor setting of Fonthill Castle.
