Soho Rep.

Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company


Written and directed by Young Jean Lee

Following last season’s hit, THE SHIPMENT, provocative playwright Young Jean Lee tackles her boldest work to date–a radical and moving response to King Lear. A Lear-less Lear about children turning their backs on their aging fathers, Lee’s irreverent tragedy challenges our love of watching terrible things.
