“I’ve always been myself, even when I was ill. Only now I seem myself. And that’s the important thing.”

1786. King George III is the most powerful man in the world. However his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy; his mind unravelling at a dramatic pace.

As the Queen and Prime Minister attempt to hide the king’s illness from his subjects, royal doctors hopelessly squabble over the correct cure, subjecting him to torturous medical treatments.

Ambitious politicians and the scheming prince begin a power struggle, endangering the stability of the crown.
A play about power and identity, examining the fine line between a King and a man.

The Madness of George III is an epic, multi-award-winning drama, familiar from both stage and screen. Expect grand costumes and royal pomp alongside nail-biting tension in Nottingham Playhouse’s brand new production of Alan Bennett’s moving and funny masterpiece.

Selected as theatre highlight of 2018 by BBC News, Daily Mail and Nottingham Post.
