A MULTI-AWARD winning drama will be shown on screen in Gwynedd later this month.

An encore screening of The Madness of George III, by Alan Bennett, will take place at Neuadd Buddug Cinema, in Bala, on Thursday, December 13.

Broadcast as live from Nottingham Playhouse, 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 (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world.

But his behaviour 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 December 13 screening at Neuadd Buddug starts at 7pm and tickets are priced at £12.50.
