Written by one of Britain's best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

It's 1786 and 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 to expose the fine line between King and man.

Starring Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) & Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey).
