free

The Original Practice Shakespeare Festival presents a free, live performance of “King Lear” from 7 to 9:30 p.m. July 10 at Laurelhurst Park, S.E. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd. and Stark St., Portland. The actors have no idea what character they will play until the audience casts the show one hour prior to curtain. Arrive early to help cast the show before the play begins. This performance is not suitable for children. Picnics are welcome and all attendees should wear masks. Here’s a plot synopsis:

Lear’s retiring and divides up his kingdom. Regan gets half. Gonerril gets half. Cordelia gets banished. Kent gets banished, but sticks around anyways (in disguise!). Edmund the Bastard stages a coup, alongside Goneril and Regan. Lear is cast out. Cordelia rides to Lear’s rescue. All your favorite characters die.
