The play "King Lear" is based on the legend of a king of Britain in ancient times. Much of the action takes place in Lear's palace. Other settings include Gloucester's castle and a farmhouse near it, the Duke of Albany's palace, a forest, a heath, and a field near the town of Dover where both the British and the French armies have set up encampments.
