In the future, the Queen is dead.  Long live the King.  The crown has finally come to the patiently waiting Charles.  But other forces have been waiting, too … waiting for a monarch who they believe will help them pass a most undemocratic law.

In 2014, Mike Bartlett’s “future history play” took the theatre world by storm.  The New York Times called it “flat out brilliant”, “dazzlingly presumptuous” and, finally, “this splendid, high-reaching and utterly unexpected play.”
