The Madness of George III

Back to Previous

The Madness of George III is a multi-award winning play dramatising the final years of King George III's reign of the United Kingdom, his battle with mental illness and the inability of the court to handle his condition.

Set in England in 1786, we find King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behavior is becoming increasingly erratic, with his mind unravelling at a dramatic pace. As his Prime Minister and Queen Charlotte attempt to hide the king's illness from his subjects, royal doctors hopelessly squabble over the correct cure, subjecting him to torturous medical treatments, while ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales begin a power struggle, endangering the stability of the crown.
