The Madness of George III

One of Alan Bennett's most celebrated plays, The Madness of George III arrives in the West End in Christopher Luscombe's accalaimed Peter Hall Company production from Bath's Theatre Royal. David Haig reprises his role as the mad king at the Apollo Theatre.

Originally written for the National Theatre in 1992, the show belatedly makes its West End debut, having lost none of its power. In Bennett's hands George III becomes an irascible but sympathetic character, wracked by what was probably porphyria, and forced to submit to the most extraordinary "cures" by the doctors of his day. And how did the power mongers, his son the Prince Regent included, play the situation to their advantage!

David Haig returns to the West End stage having most recently created the role of Prime Minister Jim Hacker in Yes, Prime Minister.
