King George III is unwell and parliament is in crisis. His behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic, with rumours circulating that he has even addressed an oak tree as the King of Prussia. Doctors are brought in with their bizarre and inhumane treatments as the pleasure-seeking Prince of Wales prepares to manoeuvre himself into power…
It is a spectacle of Kingship, a comedy of manners and an exploration of a man in mental crisis.
“I have always been myself even when I was ill. Only now I seem myself. That’s the important thing. I have remembered how to seem. What, what?”
