A Family Feud of Majestic Proportions

The most glamorous and photographed family in the world, the British royal family, seen through a modern-Shakespearean lens.

The Queen is Dead. Long Live the King. Queen Elizabeth II is dead and Prince Charles-after a lifetime of waiting-prepares to finally ascend to the throne. One family holds the future of Great Britain in its hands. But what do Prince William, Princess Kate, and Prince Harry really think about their father’s ascension?

The Prime Minister proposes legislation designed to restrict the freedom of the press, which Charles opposes, subverting the understood rules of British democracy. Defying centuries of tradition, Charles boldly attempts to reassert the crown’s power, landing himself – and his country – in a royal mess.

Exploring the themes of power and betrayal, Mike Bartlett’s blank-verse, internationally acclaimed play, King Charles III, is a Shakespearean-style take on the future of the British Royal Family, skillfully revealing the living, breathing, nuanced flesh and blood people beneath the crowns. A smash Broadway and West End hit, King Charles III was nominated for 6 Olivier Awards, 5 Tony Awards, 3 Drama Desk Awards, winning Best Play in London and was recently made into a BBC/PBS Masterpiece Special starring Tim Piggott-Smith in the title role.
