The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule?
Mike Bartlett’s controversial new play explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.
Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold directs the World Premiere, following his acclaimed production of American Psycho. He is reunited with Mike Bartlett (Chariots of Fire, Cock) after their collaboration on Earthquakes in London.
Rupert Goold will direct a cast that will include Katie Brayben, Oliver Chris, Richard Goulding, Nyasha Hatendi, Adam James, Margot Leicester, Tim Pigott-Smith, Tom Robertson, Nicholas Rowe, Nick Sampson, Tafline Steen and Lydia Wilson.
In his new play for the Almeida, writer Mike Bartlett imagines a future with Charles on the throne. ‘We have this strange family at the top of our society and it is our duty to question why,’ he tells Nick Curtis
Broadway is getting Queen Elizabeth II this spring in “The Audience,” a play starring Helen Mirren as the monarch, and in all probability Broadway will get her soon afterward with “King Charles III,” Mike Bartlett’s future-history play that has earned critical acclaim in London.
LONDON — “We’ll never be royals,” begins the chorus of the hit pop song by Lorde that’s played as the curtain falls on Mike Bartlett’s dazzling “King Charles III” at Wyndham’s Theater. And aren’t we the lucky ones?
Fresh from winning the 2015 Olivier Award for best play, Mike Bartlett’s “future-history” tale “King Charles III” has claimed the Music Box Theater for a fall run on Broadway. U.K. actor Tim Piggott-Smith will reprise his role as Charles, who, in the play, becomes king of England following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Rupert Goold, the artistic director of London’s Almeida Theater, directs. Further casting remains to be set for “King Charles III.” Stuart Thompson and Sonia Friedman produce the show, which begins previews Oct. 10 ahead of a Nov. 1 opening.

Broadway and London producers are in talks about a New York run of the hit British play “Wolf Hall” and its sequel “Bring Up the Bodies,” based on the historical novels by Hilary Mantel about Henry VIII and his adviser Thomas Cromwell, according to theater executives with knowledge of the discussions.
“Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2,” the rebranded two-part theater event that originated at the Royal Shakespeare Company as “Wolf Hall” and “Bring Up the Bodies,” has mapped out its route to Broadway, landing at the Winter Garden Theater in an April opening.
It’s chilling (and thrilling, too — admit it) to listen to these people talk about one another, especially to the all-hearing, frozen-faced spin master at their center. Their conversation gives new resonance to that credo of cattiness, “If you can’t say anything good about someone, come sit next to me.”
As of March 10, 2015, we have a few copies of the RSC Edition of the plays, ISBN 9780007590148, $16.00
Skylight was originally produced in 1995 at The National Theatre before transferring to the West End and Broadway. It was that year’s recipient of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play.
Now it returns in a production loaded with starpower and promise, featuring Bill Nighy and, making her West End debut, Carey Mulligan, as former lovers whose attempt at reconciliation is hampered by the personal and ideological differences they've gone through since they last met.
It's directed by Stephen Daldry, who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience and whose award-winning stage work also includes An Inspector Calls and Billy Elliott the Musical.
On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died.
As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.
Bill Nighy's extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
He also has an illustrious stage CV that includes numerous David Hare plays, among them A Map of the World at the NT Lyttelton, Hare and Howard Brenton's Pravda at the NT Olivier, and the original NT production of Skylight, in which Michael Gambon played Tom, at the West End's Vaudeville Theatre and on a UK tour.
Carey Mulligan’s cinematic star has risen inexorably over the last few years, with standout performances in Inside Llewyn Davies, The Great Gatsby and An Education. She will make her West End stage debut in Skylight.
They're joined in the cast by Matthew Beard, whose film work includes An Education, One Day, and The Look of Love.
Few British theater partnerships have been as fruitful as the relationship between playwright David Hare and actor Bill Nighy. Like De Niro and Scorsese, Clooney and Soderbergh, they not only seem to understand each other on a molecular level but also seem to channel each other's creative vibes with an apparent effortlessness.
