The Madness of George III - A Live Theatre Broadcast

  • Woodstock Opera House 121 Van Buren Street Woodstock, IL 60098 (map)

Join us for A Live Theatre Broadcast of The Madness of George III starring Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough, written by Adam Penford and directed by Alan Bennett. Set in 1788, King George III (played by Mark Gatiss) is the most powerful man in the world. However, his behavior is becoming increasingly erratic; and his mind unravels at a dramatic pace. As the Queen (played by Debra Gillett) and Prime Minister (played by Nicholas Bishop) attempt to hide the king’s illness from his subjects, royal doctors – among them Dr Willis (played by Adrian Scarborough) – hopelessly squabble over the correct cure, subjecting him to torturous medical treatments. Ambitious politicians and the scheming prince begin a power struggle, endangering the stability of the crown.
