The Madness of George III
It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behavior 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.
This multi-award-winning drama by Alan Bennett, one of Britain’s most beloved playwrights, comes to National Theatre Live broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse. The cast includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, Coriolanus) and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).
