The Mad­ness of Ge­orge III

The Sunday Telegraph - - Arts - Do­minic Cavendish

Mark Gatiss ( Sher­lock, The League of Gen­tle­men) comes into his own as a lead­ing stage ac­tor with this spell­bind­ing re­vival of Alan Ben­nett’s 1991 por­trait of a monarch plunged into the depths of per­plex­ity and bab­bling in­co­her­ence. The play is a mar­vel of his­tor­i­cal com­pres­sion, and Gatiss’s per­for­mance is a rev­e­la­tion.
