British Council and Multikino present an encore screening of The Madness of George III recorded at Nottingham Playhouse in London.
Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere 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).
It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour 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.
Digital DCP, High Definition projection with Digital Dolby Surround, in English with Polish subtitles.
Running time: 230 minutes
The screenings will take place on 23 May at 19.00 in the following Multikino cinemas: Gdańsk, Katowice, Kraków, Lublin, Łódź, Olsztyn, Poznań – Stary Browar, Rzeszów, Szczecin, Warszawa – Ursynów, Warszawa – Targówek, Warszawa – Złote Tarasy, Wrocław – Pasaż Grunwaldzki and Zabrze.
