Über diesen Titel


George III's behaviour has often been odd, but now he is deranged, with rumours circulating that he has even addressed an oak tree as the King of Prussia. Doctors are brought in, the government wavers and the Prince Regent manoeuvres himself into power.Alan Bennett's play explores the court of a mad king, and the fearful treatments he was forced to undergo. It is about the nature of kingship itself, showing how by subtle degrees the ruler's delirium erodes his authority and status.The Madness of George III premiered at the National Theatre, London, in November 1991.

From the Back Cover:

"What Bennett has done in 'Madness' is to powerfully re-imagine the atmosphere of George's royal court, giving the dialogue a modern twist while keeping it from sounding anachronistic. The pleasure he takes in the spoken word, his ability to etch characters in both acid and compassion, to write such lines of dialogue as 'the state of the monarchy and the state of lunacy share a frontier' set this film thankfully apart."

-- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
