King Charles III Begins

  • Playhouse on the Square 66 Cooper Street Memphis, TN, 38104 United States (map)

The Regional Premiere of King Charles III opens September 23 at Playhouse on the Square. Hailed by The New York Times as a “flat-out brilliant portrait of a monarchy in crisis,” the 2015 Olivier Award winner for Best New Play, King Charles III takes us to an alternate reality where, after a lifetime of waiting, Britain’s Prince Charles ascends the throne. Now the question becomes, “How to rule?” This controversial drama explores the people beneath the monarchy, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.
