Windsor Castle, 1817. King George III contemplates his life, drawing on his personal past as well as momentous political and historical events over the course of his reign. An almost uninterrupted monologue of digressive musings, In the Ruins unpicks the psychological reality of the Mad King.

Nick Dear’s In the Ruins was first broadcast by BBC Radio 3 in June 1984.
