REVIEWS

"Bold, brilliant and unstoppably entertaining ... all the intrigue and forward momentum of a real history play. The grandeur too ... King Charles III makes us care, makes us laugh, and no doubt will make us argue too. Theatre doesn’t get much better than this" ~ The Times

"A meaty, hilarious, dizzyingly audacious state of the nation political thriller ... elevates the tawdriness of the Royal soap opera into something sublime and serious ... a thrilling working through of ideas about modern Britain" ~ Timeout

"Immensely enjoyable .... convincingly plausible ... remarkable and thought provoking" ~ whatsonstage.com

"Wonderfully original … Bartlett's brilliant text pulses with Shakespearean resonances … a right royal triumph" ~ The Stage
