The Almeida's KING CHARLES III, Starring Tim Pigott-Smith, to Transfer to Wyndham's Theatre from Sept 2
The Almeida Theatre's acclaimed production of King Charles III transfers to the Wyndham's Theatre for a limited season previewing from Tuesday 2 September with a press performance on Thursday 11 September. Tim Pigott-Smith once again plays Charles, and Oliver Chris will reprise his role as William. They are joined by Katie Brayben, Richard Goulding, Nyasha Hatendi, Adam James, Margot Leicester, Miles Richardson, Tom Robertson, Nicholas Rowe, Tafline Steen and Lydia Wilson.
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 play explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain's most famous family. The production is playing to sell-out crowds at the Almeida Theatre until 31 May, and has received international critical acclaim.
King Charles III will be the fourth production to transfer from the Almeida Theatre to the West End with co-producer Sonia Friedman Productions, within the last year. Chimerica played to sell-out audiences at the Harold Pinter Theatre and won five Olivier Awards including Best New Play, Richard Eyre's Ghosts played at the Trafalgar Studios from last December winning three Olivier Awards including Best Revival and Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan's critically acclaimed production of 1984, currently playing at the Playhouse Theatre, has just extended its run by five weeks until 23 August due to unprecedented demand.
The Almeida Theatre Production of King Charles III is produced in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, Stuart Thompson Productions and the Almeida Theatre in association with Lee Dean & Charles Diamond and Tulchin Bartner Productions.
