King Charles III
As this play transfers theatres, its characters switch the throne—but how to rule.
Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, Mike Bartlett’s critically acclaimed new future history play King Charles III will transfer to the Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season, previewing from Tuesday 2 September.
The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. 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.
King Charles III is the fourth production to transfer from the Almeida Theatre to the West End with co-producer Sonia Friedman Productions, following Chimerica, Ghosts and 1984. Book now for the must-see play of the year.
Strictly Limited Season | 2 September – 29 November 2014
