Synopsis


His life has been a lingering for the throne.


Set in a 'near future', Mike Bartlett's King Charles III draws on the form of Shakespeare's history plays in terms of a five-act structure, juxtaposition of blank verse with prose, and satirical humour.


The Queen is dead, and Charles is at last King.


Determined to assert his power, the new ruler vetoes a bill restricting freedom of the press, in disagreement with the Prime Minister.


But the conflict cannot be resolved and he dissolves parliament, causing chaos.


As protests erupt across the country and the social fabric begins to fray, William and Kate try desperately to restore stability, but at a considerable cost.


Meanwhile Camilla frets, politicians plot and Harry seeks a life and love beyond the confines of his royal role.
