Without my voice, and spirit, I am dust,
This is not what I want, but what I must.
In "King Charles III," playwright Mike Bartlett uses Shakespearean verse to envision a near future where personal privacy, public betrayals and a threat to free press collide in the days following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the royal family reimagined in the regional premiere of the Critic’s Circle Award-winner and Olivier Award-winner for Best New Play, as well as Tony nominee for Best New Play.
Since 1958, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has delighted audiences with professional theatre on the CU Boulder campus. Complete your Colorado summer with this future history play in the elegant University Theatre.
