The play imagines a future in which Britain's current Queen Elizabeth II has passed away and her son, the current Prince Charles, has assumed the throne. "The Queen is dead," press notes state. "After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne. A future of power lies before him...but how to rule?"
The cast features Tim Pigott-Smith as the imagined King Charles III, Margot Leicester as Camilla, Anthony Calf as Mr. Stevens, Oliver Chris as William, Richard Goulding as Harry, Nyasha Hatendi as Spencer and other roles, Adam James as Mr. Evans, Miles Richardson as James Reiss, Tom Robertson as Cootsey and other roles, Sally Scott as Sarah and other roles, Tafline Steen as Jess and Lydia Wilson as Kate.
Written by Mike Bartlett and directed by Rupert Goold, King Charles III features sets and costumes by Tom Scutt, music compositions by Jocelyn Pook, lighting design by Jon Clark and sound design by Paul Arditti. The New York transfer is produced by Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman and the Almeida Theatre.
