King Charles III to receive Australian premiere in March 2016

Tuesday, 8 September 2015

The production will run from 31 March until 30 April 2016. Robert Powell will reprise the role of Charles as performed on the UK Tour.

The Almeida Theatre production of the 2015 Olivier Award winner for Best Play, King Charles III imagines the aftermath of the death of Elizabeth II when Prince Charles finally ascends the throne. 

Confronting the contradictions of monarchy and democracy and exploring power and betrayal, the ‘future history’ play turns a Shakespearean lens on relationships in the world’s most famous and exposed family.

Written by Mike Bartlett and directed by Rupert Goold with Whitney Mosery, King Charles III is designed by Tom Scutt, with music composed by Jocelyn Pook, lighting by Jon Clark and sound by Paul Arditti.

King Charles III is co-produced in Sydney by Sonia Friedman Productions, Stuart Thompson Productions, Tulchin Bartner Productions, Charles Diamond and the Almeida Theatre in association with Birmingham Repertory and by arrangement with Lee Dean.
