Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate Village, London N6 4BD

Director: Adam Sutcliffe

Power is a play full of wit and humour, scheming for money and power, and sexual conquests, set in France at the court of the young King Louis XIV between 1661 and 1664. When the all-powerful Mazarin dies, Louis decides to take the reins of power to reshape France and become an absolute monarch. The court, however, is much happier with a king who pursues his mistresses and does not interfere with State finances. Rivalries & temptations abound. Premiered at the National in 2003.

Nick Dear is one of Britain's leading playwrights, having written and adapted many plays for tv and the National Theatre, including Frankenstein (directed by Danny Boyle for the National in 2011). online now
