Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III, recorded live by the National Theatre from Nottingham Playhouse, is set in 1786, when King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man. Written by Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van, Allelujah!), one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights, this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991. The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (“Sherlock,” “Wolf Hall,” National Theatre Live’s Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (“Gavin and Stacey,” “Upstairs Downstairs”).
