King Charles III, Mike Bartlett's "future history play" that won the Olivier Award for best new play Sunday night, is aiming to transfer to Broadway in the fall, according to the New York Times.

The Times reports that the show’s New York publicist, Rick Miramontez, will announce the production's future plans April 13.

As previously reported, King Charles III would be presented by Stuart Thompson and Sonia Friedman, producers of recent transfers The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the double-bill of Twelfth Night/Richard III, respectively.

After receiving its world premiere at London's Almeida Theater, King Charles III transferred to the West End, where it played an extended run through Jan. 31. Rupert Goold (Enron, Macbeth) directed.

The play imagines a future when Prince Charles takes over the monarchy from his mother Queen Elizabeth II.

The Times previously reported that Tim Pigott-Smith ("Downton Abbey," "V for Vendetta,"), currently starring in London, would likely star in the Broadway production.

Bartlett's previous plays include Artefacts, Cock, Love Love Love, Bull, Chariots of Fire, Contractions, My Child, Medea and 13.
