A KING, A MAN
Christian Schiaretti tackles the story of King Lear, his hike in time and space, between hope and distress. This distraught old man, who will do just anything (but it is too late) to hear his daughters tell him of their love, is Serge Merlin. This unique actor is able to lead us to the edge of and inside worlds as unstable as they are unpredictable, worlds of delirium and ruthless reality, in which at one time or another, everyone can see themselves.
