Queen Elizabeth II is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, her son ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule?

OA Mike Bartlett’s controversial ‘future history play’, drawing on the style and structure of a Shakespearean history play, explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family. Never has there been a more pertinent time in society to stage a play like this.
