“What could have been only a cleverly executed stunt is instead an intellectually and emotionally gripping study of the strangely enduring anachronism that is the British monarchy and of the contemporary, star-struck world that can still find room for its royals. And for Bardophiles, King Charles III provides the bonus of confirming the immortal topicality of Shakespeare.”
The New York Times


The Queen is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne with Camilla by his side. As William, Kate and Harry look on, Charles prepares for the future of power that lies before him…but how to rule? Written primarily in Shakespearean blank verse, this modern history play explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of Britain’s democracy and the conscience of its most famous family.

Directed by Studio Theatre Artistic Director David Muse, Mike Bartlett’s Olivier Award-winning play makes a timely arrival in Washington, D.C. Pondering regime change and political upheaval while spinning a tale of modern royalty with classic language, Bartlett constructs a contemporary Shakespearean drama in our immediate future.
