A future history play by Mike Bartlett

The Lyric


Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre and a critically acclaimed West End season, Mike Bartlett’s multi-award winning new play King Charles III comes to Plymouth.

The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule?

Directed by the Almeida Theatre’s Artistic Director Rupert Goold, this “bracingly provocative and outrageously entertaining new play” (The Independent) explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.

Book now for the must-see play of the year.

Cast includes Robert Powell as King Charles III.
