The future history play is written by Mike Bartlett. Its current tour follows a sold-out run in the West End.

The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule?

It can be seen at the Theatre Royal until Saturday, October 10.

Rupert Goold, the ‘bracingly provocative and

outrageously entertaining new play’ (The Independent) explores the people underneath the crowns,

the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.
