The year is 1786. George III is King. King of England. He has a loving wife; a nation of subjects, a loyal parliament, and the world kneels at his feet.And all is not as it seems.
The first tour since its initial production in 1991.When his behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and rumours circulate that he has addressed an oak tree as the King of Prussia, doctors are called in, Parliament falters, and The Prince Regent manoeuvres himself into power.
Exploring the very nature of duty and kingship, this epic play probes the ties that bind us together as family, as society and as a nation. Drama, dangerous politics and English history collide in a rollercoaster ride where the health of the nation is at the mercy of the mental health of one man.
From the hand of national treasure Alan Bennett, the author behind The History Boys and Talking Heads, this marks the first touring production of the play since the original award-winning production

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
