Every Inch a King
As Charles’ condition deteriorates, Anna tries to involve Richard in the growing crisis, but he is too wrapped up with the admiring young cast of East Hastings who fully credit him with the musical’s enormous success. Geoffrey, now living with Charles, feels out of his depth caring for the frail and elderly actor. He is deeply alarmed when Charles appears able to see and talk to Oliver. Ellen grudgingly agrees to meet with Barbara’s New York agent, who tempts her with the lead in a TV series. Opening night for Lear arrives, Charles goes AWOL, causing Richard to finally step in and take drastic measures.
