Tim Pigott-Smith and Oliver Chris in King Charles III

Mike Bartlett’s acclaimed play, directed by Rupert Goold, was a smash-hit at the Almeida Theatre earlier this year and transfers to the Wyndham’s Theatre from 2 September 2014 for a limited season.

King Charles III is designed by Tom Scutt, with music is composed by Jocelyn Pook, lighting by Jon Clark and sound by Paul Arditti.

The play imagines a future time when the Queen is dead and Prince Charles finally ascends to the throne, exploring the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.
