Tickets from £12.50 to 'King Charles III' - rated ★★★★★ by Time Out - at Wyndham's Theatre
Sorry you missed this offer...
- Hailed as 'a meaty, hilarious, dizzyingly audacious state of the nation political thriller' and awarded five stars by our theatre boffs, this is one play you won't want to miss this year.
- Queen Liz is dead, which means that after a lifetime of waiting, the throne is finally Charles's. The result? Downright brilliant theatre.
- In short, if you live in a monarchy (hell, even if you don't), you should see this play.
The fourth production to transfer from the Almeida Theatre to the West End, 'King Charles III' has already proved a massive hit with critics. Awarded five stars by Time Out, The Times and The Independent, the general feeling is that this bold, funny and thoroughly entertaining play is set to take London by storm next month, so, naturally, we've got a cracking offer for you!
From as little as £12.50, you can see the show that theatre fans will be queuing up to see and save up to 40% in the process. With brilliant performances from the whole cast, highly accomplished direction and a wickedly funny script, one is guaranteed a right royal night out.
From Time Out's five-star review:
The setting of ‘King Charles III’ is a few years hence, as the Royal family regroups after the death of Elizabeth II. And the form... the form is Shakespearean-styled historical drama, written in blank verse and iambic pentameter, with an epic storyline following the schemes of Charles III as he sets himself up for a tragic showdown with ministers and family.
‘King Charles III’ isn’t a Republican play or a monarchist play, but rather a thrilling working-through of ideas about modern Britain. That’s underscored by the way the excellent Pigott-Smith’s pitiable Charles comes into conflict with his government: as a draconian Privacy Bill is on the cusp of passing both houses, Charles believes the freedom of the British press is under threat, and feels he must make a stand for the sake of his subjects. The funny, sad, outrageous chain of events that follows won't happen in the real world. But they are, perhaps, the things that the exaggerated, media myth versions of the Royal family – ‘our’ Kate, ‘our’ Harry etc - might do. Oh, did I mention there’s a cameo from Diana’s ghost?
A few bores will say ‘King Charles III’ is disrespectful, but it’s not about Charles; it’s about the idea of Charles, and what our acceptance of a new king will represent. Long may is reign.
