The West End run of King Charles III has been extended until January next year.

Written by Mike Bartlett, the play had been booking at Wyndham’s Theatre until November 29.

It has now been extended by nine weeks, until January 31, 2015.

Tim Pigott-Smith will continue in the role of Charles, which he originated when the show opened at the Almeida Theatre earlier this year.

Directed by Rupert Goold, the play is designed by Tom Scutt, has music by Jocelyn Pook, lighting by Jon Clark and sound by Paul Arditti.

It is produced in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, Stuart Thompson Productions and the Almeida, in association with Lee Dean and Charles Diamond, and Tulchin Bartner Productions.
