The Madness of George III - National Theatre

Spotlight Theatre


Written by Alan Bennett this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough.

It's 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world, but his behaviour is becoming increasingly erractic 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.
