Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett, this epic play was also adapted into a Bafta award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The play is set in 1786 when King George III was considered the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy.

With the king’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the crown, and expose the fine line between a king and a man.

The cast of this production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough.

The National Theatre’s performance of The Madness of George III will be screened at St James Cavalier Cinema, Spazju Kreattiv, Valletta, tomorrow, Sunday, January 13 at 6pm. For tickets, visit www.kreattivita.org.
