King Charles III

Wednesday, Feb 6, 2019 - Sunday, Feb 24, 2019 at Clarence Brown Theatre Mainstage

By Mike Bartlett

“The most insightful and engrossing new history play in decades”
~ The New York Times

Queen Elizabeth II has died.  After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles is finally King. How will he reign? And what do his children think about his ascension to the throne?

Written like a Shakespearean history, this Broadway and London hit explores the potential rivalries of the Royal Family, the unwritten rules governing Britain’s monarchy, and the contemporary stresses on its democracy.
