KING CHARLES III

By MIKE BARTLETT

WINNER of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best Play

The Queen is dead. Long live the King! After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne with Camilla by his side. As William, Kate, and Harry look on, Charles prepares for the future of power that lies before him…but how will he rule? The play draws on the style and structure of a Shakespearean history play, but with modern verve, a comic subplot, and even the occasional appearance of a significant ghost. An exciting and provocative new drama of political intrigue by Mike Bartlett, King Charles III explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of democracy, and the conscience of its most famous family.

Approximate running time: 2 hours and 25 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.
