The kids might not always understand Shakespeare, but this one might interest them: A family-friendly version of "King Lear" is coming to OSU this week and next.

The Royal Shakespeare Company will put on the production from Oct. 31 to Nov. 10, at the Drake Performance and Event Center. Suitable for children as young as 8 years old, "King Lear" tells the story of a king who must decide how to divide his kingdom between his daughters. After each performance, guests will have the opportunity to talk to the actors during a Q&A session.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students in grades K-12. Visit to purchase tickets and learn about the specific dates and times.
