Mike Bartlett’s controversial ‘future history play’ explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family. Queen Elizabeth II is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, her son ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? Drawing on the style and structure of a Shakespearean history play, King Charles III is part political thriller, part family drama, and a timely examination of contemporary Britain.
Ages 12 +
Running time: 2 hours 35 minutes, including a 15 minute interval.
