SUCCESSION calls upon the grand traditions of opera, Shakespeare and the tales of Olympus to expose today's 1% as equal parts powerful and pathetic. Jesse Armstrong's deliciously dark saga of family crackles with the clash of would-be titans, each stumbling to prove their killer instincts as they battle for their father's approval. Brian Cox's towering patriarch challenges audiences to cheer for his downfall - with a smile.

SUCCESSION summons the spirit of Shakespeare to elevate this fusion of family and finances to a stage worthy of the globe. Jesse Armstrong's re-imagining of "King Lear" in a modern world is, itself, sharper than a serpent's tooth, with Brian Cox howling at the center of the storm. Here he commands this high-spirited look at money, power and humor that proves "In jest, there is truth."
