King Charles III
by Mike Bartlett
We've read many classic plays in our Sunday afternoon sessions. Here's something right up to date - 'King Charles III' is nearing the end of a very successful London run.
The play is set in the near future. Queen Elizabeth II is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, her son ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule ?
Mike Bartlett's play explores the people beneath the crowns. the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain's most famous family.
'Outstanding and provocative … the most spectacular, gripping and wickedly entertaining piece of lèse-majesté that British theatre has ever seen.'
