King Charles III is the winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Play and nominee for the 2016 Best New Play Tony award, as well as the #1 Play of 2015 as chosen by the The New York Times, Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and Associated Press.
King Charles III takes place in an imagined future. Elizabeth has been laid to rest and the new King’s first actions threaten the existence of the English crown. William and Kate are determined to usurp the throne and save the house of Windsor while a restless Harry and the ghost of Diana haunt the palace.
This fiendishly clever future Shakespearean history play is a treat for fans of Hamlet and People Magazine alike.
