Historical Play Illustrating the Line between Personal Wishes & That of the Greater Good
Following sell-out runs in both the West End and the Almeida Theatre last autumn, award-winning play King Charles III has finally made its Broadway debut. The story starts off after the death of Queen Elizabeth and shows Prince Charles preparing to become King with Camilla and his children by his side. The plot unveils immediately as King Charles has his first meeting with the British Prime Minister, played by Adam James, in which the former refuses to sign a bill that restricts freedom of press. When the parliament denies his request to rethink about the bill, Charles makes use of his position and threatens to force the country into anarchy.
Inspired by Shakespeare’s historical play style, Mike Bartlett sets up the background story of political scheming involving actual people and events. The story becomes interesting when King Charles III’s actions unite both the opposition and ruling parties against him and a bit of misuse of presidential power can also be seen. Charles is also not ready to leave his stance believing he made the right decision.
With no loose ends, the plot keeps coming back to the point – the sacrifice of personal wishes when they come into conflict with the greater good. No matter who’s in charge, the greater good in this case was people’s confidence in both the monarchy and government.
A Spectacular Portrayal of Royal Unraveling
While most of the credit for the play’s brilliant execution and story development goes to Mike Bartlett and Rupert Goold, the cast has also outdone itself. Pigott-Smith stands out as King Charles and he fully embraces his character of a man who waited a long time to reach the throne only to find himself being challenged in every step of the way.
Lydia Wilson is also superb as Kate – wife of Charles’s eldest son William. Anthony Calf as the opposition leader Stevens is the fitting image of a schemer, manipulating people into getting his own way.
Filled with symbolism and imagery, watching King Charles III is no less than taking a political science advance class. The play connects on multiple levels highlighting the challenges faced by person wearing the crown.
Rupert Goold has done an exceptional job with direction, taking the main characters who also happen to be public figures and making them intriguing for the audience. The suspense in the play is unnerving and keeps the audience hooked throughout. King Charles III is a strictly limited engagement so it’s best to buy King Charles III tickets now. A crowning achievement, the production is flat out brilliant.
