Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.

In 1786, as King George III’s mind unravels 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. $18 ($16 for Members). Guild Hall,

They’re the most exacting interpretation of the music of the Eagles in America, bar none! Each member mirrors his counterpart in the Eagles instrumentally and vocally. However, this is no simple cover band or impersonator act but rather a group of world-class musicians who expertly and authentically capture and re-create the songs, the music, the vocals and the magical aura of one of America’s greatest rock bands.
