Recently-retired Canadian media tycoon Henry Dunbar, who made his name through ruthless deals and alliances, is schlepped off to a sanatorium by his greedy, sadistic elder daughters and their conniving personal physician bent on divesting him of his company and seizing his substantial assets. Smelling a rat, Dunbar's recently-estranged but still loyal youngest daughter enlists her father's most trusted advisor to unwind the conspiracy, but with a board meeting to decide the future just days away, will their help come too late? The once power-hungry head of a global media corporation, clinging to sanity, must team up with a disgraced alcoholic comedian to break out of the asylum and somehow reinstate himself as the head of his empire before his daughters and business rivals ruin him for ever.

I'm enjoying these Hogarth Press Shakespeare Series retellings of the Bard's plays. This modern version of "King Lear" has great word play, powerful writing, and evokes the cathartic emotions of pity and horror and love.
