GO SEE | The Madness of King George III

Performed at the Nottingham Playhouse, the National Theatre’s award winning play, The Madness of King George III will be screened live at theatres across the country including The Little. Scripted by Alan Bennett, the modern classic is topical for Bath. George III’s ill health led to his son becoming Prince Regent. Self proclaimed ‘First Gentleman of Europe’, The Prince’s lavish shopping habits and his patronage of the arts set the tone for the era during which much of Bath’s beautiful architecture was built.  20th November, 7pm at The Little Theatre Bath
