NT Live: The Madness Of King George (12A) 210mins

by Alan Bennett

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to Kino Bermondsey, Hawkhurst and Rye on Tuesday 20th November at 7pm in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse. Tickets on sale from 2pm Friday 7th September.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), 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, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

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 expose the fine line between a King and a man.

Running time approximately 210 minutes including an interval.
