Tour dates announced for King Charles III

Dates and venues have been announced for the previously announced UK tour of King Charles III starring Robert Powell in the title role.

Mike Bartlett's new play premiered at the Almeida Theatre before transferring to the West End. It is also opening on Broadway later this year.

The UK touring production opens at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 4th September 2015 and will then tour to: Richmond Theatre, Newcastle Theatre Royal, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Milton Keynes Theatre, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Canterbury Marlowe Theatre, Malvern Festival Theatre, Guildford Yvonne Arnaud, Edinburgh Festival Theatre, Bath Theatre Royal, Chichester Festival Theatre and Plymouth Theatre Royal.

The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? Bartlett's Olivier Award winning play explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain's most famous family. 

Directed by the Almeida Theatre’s artistic director Rupert Goold with Whitney MoseryKing Charles III is designed by Tom Scutt, music composed by Jocelyn Pook, with lighting by Jon Clark and sound by Paul Arditti.

Robert Powell is best known for playing Jesus in Jesus of Nazareth (which won him a BAFTA nomination for Best Actor) and as series regular Mark Williams in Holby City. His theatre credits include Singin' in the Rain (Palace Theatre), Ubu Roi and Pirates (both Royal Court), Travesties (RSC), Tovarich (Chichester Festival Theatre), and more recently touring productions of Doctor in the House and Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell.
