King Charles III (West End edition)
By: Mike Bartlett (author)Paperback
Mike Bartlett's controversial 'future history play' explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain's most famous family. Queen Elizabeth II is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, her son ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? Drawing on the style and structure of a Shakespearean history play, King Charles III opened at London's Almeida Theatre, directed by its Artistic Director Rupert Goold, in 2014, before transferring to the West End.
Mike Bartlett exploded onto the scene in 2007 with the premiere of "My Child" at the Royal Court. Since then he has gone on to become one of his generation s most inventive and successful dramatists with plays such as "Artefacts" (2008), "Cock" (2009), "Earthquakes in London" (2010) and "13" (2011). 2012 saw the London premieres of "Love, Love, Love, Medea" and "Chariots of Fire," which transferred from the Hampstead Theatre to the West End. His play "Bull" opened at the Sheffield Crucible in 2013 and transferred to New York as part of last years Brits off Broadway season. Another new play, "An Intervention," also opens in April 2014. Mike joined NHB s list of leading playwrights from Methuen last year. He lives in East London."
