BWW Review: THE MADNESS OF GEORGE III at SHAW FESTIVAL
by Michael Rabice - Jun 19, 2017

Being a monarch would imply that the best care would be at your disposal, but when the malady is unknown, even King George III of England suffered with the illness and often moreso with the treatment. Alan Bennett's 1991 play THE MADNESS OF GEORGE III is being given a lavishly detailed production at the Shaw Festival in Niagara on the Lake. George may be best known as the monarch who lost control of the American colonies in 1776, but he was dealt a worse fate, suffering from Acute Intermittent Porphyria.

His production of a blue colored urine was the first medical sign that something was amiss with the King. (more...)
