It’s 1786 and King George III (Gatiss of "Sherlock" and "Wolf Hall") 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 unraveling 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. Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett ("The History Boys," "The Lady in the Van"). DCP digital. (Description courtesy of NT Live)
