This collection aims to make the best of Shakespearean theatre accessible to a younger audience. King Lear has set his daughters a test to prove how much they love him. Goneril and Regan flatter the old king, but his youngest daughter, Cordelia, loves him too much to play the game. In a moment of anger, Lear banishes Cordelia. Can any good come out of this rash decision?
