Sir Ian McKellan stars in a live streaming of King Lear at Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsbrough this month.

And we have a pair of tickets to give away for the show.

Showing as part of the National Theatre Live series, this is contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.

Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

The live streaming is at Trinity Arts Centre on Thursday, September 27 at 7pm.

Tickets are £15 and £13 on 01427 676655 or
