Robert Powell takes the title role when the hugely acclaimed new play King Charles III comes to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from October 5-10 as part of a national tour.

Written by Mike Bartlett, and directed by Rupert Goold with Whitney Mosery, King Charles III has enjoyed sellout runs in the West End and has won many awards.

The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule?

Mike Bartlett’s play explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.

This year King Charles III has been awarded the Olivier Award, Critics Choice and South Bank Sky Arts Award for Best New Play.

It has also been broadcast on BBC Radio Three.

Robert Powell’s many famous appearances include roles in Jesus Of Nazareth, Hannay, The Detectives, and Holby City.
