Alan Bennett's celebrated 1991 play The Madness of George III, was previously turned into an Oscar-winning 1994 film starring Nigel Hawthorne as the long-serving Hanoverian monarch. Behind the title was the story of a monarch who lived until he was 81, reigning for nearly sixty years during a time of great political and cultural change. The American War of Independence and the French Revolution, two of the greatest moments in human history, took place on George's watch. He even gave his name to a design movement synonymous with slender rectilinear elegance, familiar today to viewers of Grand Designs as 'those lovely windows'.
Set alongside this is the sub-plot of a wrestle for power with his son, the Prince of Wales, who ruled (as the Prince Regent) when his father became too ill to do so, and ultimately as the comparatively short-lived King George IV. Put this potent mix of historical drama and political change in the hands of a great playwright and you have yourself a hit.
The success of Bennett's 'The Madness of George III' continues today with a new production, directed by Christopher Luscombe and starring David Haig, which made its debut in Bath last summer.
