WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Following Shakespeare in his use of both blank verse and prose, playwright Mike Bartlett speculates on what happens after Queen Elizabeth II dies. After a lifetime of wanting and waiting, Prince Charles ascends to the throne. The characters are a mix of those the audience might expect — Camilla, William, daughter-in-law Kate, and Harry — and some they wouldn't: Harry's new love interest replete with a past and the family ghost, whose picture on the cover can still sell a lot of magazines. Then there's the prime minister, Evans, publicity counsel Reiss, and Stevens, the opposition leader.
