WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? This controversial piece of writing looks at the modern state of the monarchy and the unwritten rules of democracy. Mike Bartlett examines the people underneath the crown and looks into the consciousness of Britain's most famous family.
Mike Bartlett reunites with Artistic Director of the Almeida Theatre, Rupert Goold in this brand new 'future history play'.
