Mad King George

pg21d

Lakeside Little Theatre presents the HD recording of the National Theatre Live production of “The Madness of George III,” Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7, 4 p.m.

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behavior 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.

A Nottingham Playhouse production written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights, Alan Bennett, this play was also adapted into an award-winning film following its premier on stage in 1991. The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

Tickets, 250 pesos, are available at the LLT box office Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to noon.
