King Charles III
Following a sold-out run at the Almeida and a critically acclaimed West End run, Mike Bartlett’s award-winning new future history play King Charles III comes to Guildford.
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, the “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.
