In 2016, Ayres joined the cast of the Talawa Theatre Company and Royal Exchange Manchester co-production of King Lear. The Daily Telegraph praised "Fraser Ayres’s chillingly sociopathic Edmund, the amoral face of an emerging, modern calculating politics", while The Guardian said "Ayres is one of the most dangerously unstable Edmunds of recent times", the Manchester Evening News noted that "Fraser Ayres near re-writes the scale of Edmund's anger towards his illegitimate father the Earl of Gloucester (Philip Whitchurch)".
