Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse. Written by one of Britain’s best love playwrights, Alan Bennett, this epic play was adapted into a BAFTA award winning film. The cast of this new production include Olivier winners Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough.

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.

Dir: Adam Penford
