by Mike Bartlett, cast includes Robert Powell, directed by Rupert Goold

The Almeida’s acclaimed production. Winner of the Olivier Award for BEST NEW PLAY 2015.

Following a sold-out run at London’s Almeida Theatre and a critically-acclaimed season in the West End, Mike Bartlett’s award-winning new play, King Charles III comes to Bath.

The Queen is dead: but Prince Charles’s longawaited accession to the throne is far from straightforward. Things begin to unravel as William and Kate mount a Palace coup against him, Harry falls for a left-wing art student and the popular Labour Prime Minister determines to curb the freedom of the press. When riots break out and civil war looms, The Firm closes ranks…

Directed by the Almeida Theatre’s artistic director, Rupert Goold, the “bracingly provocative and outrageously entertaining new play” (Independent) explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.

Robert Powell received multiple awards and a BAFTA nomination for his portrayal of Jesus in Franco Zefferelli’s Jesus of Nazareth. His extensive stage performances include Alan Bennett’s Single Spiesand Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell.
