Our Albion Review

Director Rupert Goold and playwright Mike Bartlett are well known for delivering theatrical fireworks, both verbal and physical. When they previously joined forces at the Almeida, the result was that exhilarating firecracker of a play about the modern monarchy King Charles III, that went on to West End and Broadway success.
