        And They All Lived Happily Ever After: King Lear's Alternate Ending | Shakespeare Uncovered

        This video from Shakespeare Uncovered explores an alternate ending to King Lear written by Nahum Tate in 1681, which ends with Lear regaining his throne and Cordelia marrying Edgar. The video and accompanying support materials are best used after reading King Lear. Using video, text, graphic organizers, and text-dependent discussion questions, students will see Globe Theatre actors present this alternate ending and debate whether or not the deaths of Lear and Cordelia are necessary to the play's overall message.
