To Play the King
What would it take to bring down the King?
Ambition? Power? Ruthlessness?...Francis Urquhart?
The acclamied sequel to House of Cards
Urquhart is back, firmly established as Prime Minister with a comfortable majority. He has but one problem: a newly-crowned King whose liberal ideas set him on a collision course with the government. "It's gloves-off time at the Palace," Urquhart confides in us. Enlisting an attractive and cunning assistant, he prepares to fight a dirty war against a King who fiercely rails against his policies. As the public turn against him and his closest allies begin to plot, it looks like Urquhart's days as PM are numbered.
But a cornered Urquhart is a dangerous animal indeed. God save the King...
Ian Richardson [ whose performance as Urquhart in House of Cards won him three Best Actor Awards] returns as the rutherless, scheming, but charming Prime Minister. Corruption and ruthless ambition continue to stalk the corridors of power as Urquhart meets the ultimate challenge in this acclaimed TV production of Michael Dobbs best selling novel.
