THE LEARS

Directed By: CARL BESSAI | Runtime: 99 min | Plays In Short Block:

World-renowned, cutting edge architect Davenport Lear, nearing retirement, summons his dysfunctional children to a weekend family retreat in one of his architectural creations, a magnificent Malibu Estate. When they learn that he has decided to marry his personal assistant that Sunday it sets off an explosive and funny round of devious behavior and conflict as each of them jockeys for position borne by self-interest, greed and jealousy. In the end, this homage to Shakespeare’s KING LEAR raises fundamental questions about the nature of love, sexuality, family relationships and honesty, demonstrating that what lies
below the surface is often very different from outward manifestations.
