All hail the king
Controversial and brilliant, this 'future history play' from Mike Bartlett has enjoyed international success since its premiere in London in 2014. Now David Mirvish presents a brand new production from Studio 180. Concerning Prince Charles' long-awaited accession to King after the death of his mother, Bartlett has applied a Shakespearean to the world's most reconisable family, stripping away the jewels and ermine and exposing the person within.
WHAT IS KING CHARLES III ABOUT?
As Prince Charles finally becomes Charles III following the death of the Queen, he is faced with a multitude of problems. One of his first official duties includes signing a new act restricting the freedom of the press, which he refuses, causing political uproar and the threat of a new civil war. The problems don't stop as his daughter in-law Kate schemes just days after his coronation with the Labour Prime Minister to have him abdicate in favour of William. Will the beleaguered Charles capitulate to those who hold the real power, or try to exercise the long-forgotten powers of the monarch to ensure his own survival?
