The Guardian reviews KING LEAR

King Lear’s unreasonable expectations drive Shakespeare’s plot. After abdicating in order to “unburden’d crawl toward death” Lear expects the fawning and flattery that only power can procure to continue undiminished. It doesn’t, and his suffering begins.

Sydney Theatre Company’s production, which closes its 2015 season, is weighted by high expectations too.
