Event description: Shakespeare's masterpiece about an aging king's attempt to divide his kingdom between his three daughters. Deceived by misplaced affection and flattery, the king makes a series of terrible decisions, tearing his family and kingdom apart, and is pushed to the brink of madness. This sweeping story is heartbreaking, as it explores the sense of family and fatherhood in the midst of political ambition and intrigue. Don't miss the king's journey from madness to redemption in what has been called one of greatest stories in Western literature. Boscobel's grounds open for picnicking two hours before the show; bring your own food or enjoy prepared foods available for purchase on site. For information or to purchase tickets, visit
