Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre and critically acclaimed seasons in the West End and on Broadway, Mike Bartlett’s award-winning new play King Charles III now tours the UK.
The Queen is dead. Having waited a lifetime to fulfil his destiny, Prince Charles ascends the throne with Camilla by his side. As William, Kate and Harry look on, Charles wrestles with his new responsibilities…but how to rule?
Directed by the Almeida Theatre’s artistic director Rupert Goold, this ‘bracingly provocative and outrageously entertaining new play’ (The Independent) explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.
