2015 Olivier Award Best Play!

Mike Bartlett’s future history play King Charles III imagined a future in which Prince Charles sticks to his beliefs, triggering an almost King Lear-ish collapse. 



After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne. But how to rule? Mike Bartlett's controversial play explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of democracy, and the conscience of Britain's royal family. This special edition includes a foreword by journalist and broadcaster Jon Snow, an afterword by the playwright, and an essay about the original production.
