"I know, don't ask me how, that I will be the greatest King of all."

King Charles III is a modern Shakespearian classic - a play in five acts, beautifully written in a combination of blank verse and prose, and featuring all the drama, comedy, intrigue and political machinations one might expect from the bard.

It takes place in an imagined future, immediately after the funeral of the Queen, and explores the nature of ambition, democracy and the rôle of our monarchy.

First performed at the Almeida Theatre in 2014 with Tim Pigott-Smith in the title rôle, it won Critics' Circle and Olivier awards for Best New Play. It transferred to the West End's Wyndham Theatre and was adapted for the BBC in 2017.
