The Madness of George III

Alan Bennett’s award-winning play, known to many as the 1994 film starring Nigel Hawthorne.
It’s 1786 and King George III is 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, the loving, loyal Queen Charlotte is denied access to her husband by the scheming Prince of Wales and ambitious politicians. The King’s only hope is the materialisation of a man named Willis, a doctor with revolutionary ideas about mental health.
This production enjoyed a sell-out run at the Grove Theatre Eastbourne in April 2023.


What the audience said:

“Excellent production and staging. The cast were brilliant”

“We really enjoyed the performance. Fabulous cast, crew and costumes. It was thoroughly entertaining”

“Thank you, all cast and crew, for the wonderful show on Saturday. Excellent acting, imaginative staging, and superb costumes and props made for a great evening”

“Congrats to all for a wonderful production – thought-provoking and very ‘real’. From the costumes and props to the choice of music – and of course the actors – all brilliant”
