The National Theatre of London continues its season with its acclaimed new production of “The Madness of George III” showing in Sedona on Sunday, Nov. 25, at 3 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
The multi-award-winning drama “The Madness of George III” will be broadcast to cinemas in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.
Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett, 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 in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough.
It’s 1786 and King George III 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 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.
“The Madness of George III” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members.
Tickets are available in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office or by calling 928-282-1177 or online at www.SedonaFilmFestival.org. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
