King Charles lll
A Future History Play by Mike Bartlett
Directed by Joel Greenberg
THE QUEEN IS DEAD.
LONG LIVE THE KING?
Charles. Camilla. William. Kate. Harry. One family holds the future of Great Britain in its hands. But what will the future be? The Queen is dead. The “King-in-waiting” finally ascends the throne. Defying centuries of tradition, Charles boldly attempts to reassert the crown’s power, landing himself - and his country - in a royal mess.
Exploring power and betrayal, the internationally acclaimed play, KING CHARLES III, skillfully reveals the people beneath the crowns as nuanced flesh and blood, and turns a Shakespearean lens on relationships in the world’s most famous and exposed family.
Following sold-out runs in London’s West End and on Broadway, Mike Bartlett’s award-winning new play comes to Toronto February 10th.
