King Charles III by Mike Bartlett

The Queen is dead, and Charles is king at last. Determined to assert his power, the new ruler vetoes a bill restricting freedom of the press, in disagreement with the Prime Minister. But the conflict cannot be resolved and he dissolves parliament, causing chaos.

As protests erupt across the country and the social fabric begins to fray, William and Kate try desperately to restore stability, but at a considerable cost. Meanwhile Camilla frets, politicians plot and Harry seeks a life and love beyond the confines of his royal role.

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm, Saturday 4 May at 2.30pm.

The Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ.

Blue/Orange by Joe Penhall

Christopher is a young black patient confined to a psychiatric ward. He’s due for release and wants to go home. The problem is he thinks oranges are blue – and his doctor wants to section him.

A more senior consultant believes it’s all a matter of culture and Christopher will be better off at home with ‘people who are just like him’. But are things so black and white? Should he stay or should he go?

This scathing yet comical tale challenges our pre-conceptions about race, mental illness, and the place of the NHS in Britain today.

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm.

The Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ.

The Questors Theatre Friday 31 May - Saturday 8 June

Nell Gwynn by Jessica Swale

When Charles II grants permission for women to act, he sees Nell onstage and becomes besotted with her. Despite having a wife and a mistress, he takes her from prestigious actor Charles Hart, and they begin their own affair. Nell soon faces threats to pick the theatre or the king. But how will she choose?

Filled with bawdy jokes, comical characters, songs and dances, Nell Gwynn is a true love story set against an often farcical theatrical world.

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm.

The Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ.
From £7

Di and Viv and Rose by Amelia Bullmore

One is promiscuous. One focuses on her studies. One is sporty and jovial. They couldn’t be more different from each other, but when Di, Viv and Rose meet at university, they join forces and discover that life together can be fun and intense. But when life-changing events threaten to shake their bond they realise that perhaps they need each other more than they thought.

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm.

The Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ.

You Can’t Take It With You by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart

Alice’s family is eccentric, to say the least. She doesn’t quite fit in with them. There’s Paul, her pyromaniac father, Penny, her delusional artist mother, plus her tax-evading grandfather and snake-loving sister, amongst others.

When she falls for banker’s son Tony Kirby, she reluctantly invites her snobbish future in-laws over for dinner to meet everyone. Arriving a day earlier than expected, what will Tony’s parents make of the madhouse?

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm.

The Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ.
