Running time: 3 hr 30 minutes
It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But, his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.
From Nottingham Playhouse, this multi-award-winning drama by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights, Alan Bennett, includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough.
