Multi-award winning drama The Madness of George III, written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), is the epic play that was also adapted into a BAFTA-winning film. The cast of this new production includes Olivier award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs). It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour 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.
