by William Shakespeare

The all-powerful Lear makes a fatal decision when he misinterprets his youngest daughter’s silence as disloyalty. Cordelia flees to safety in France and marriage to the French monarch. When she brings French forces to protect her father from her ruthless sisters, the ruin of several families is set in motion.
