Is Revolution Just Power By Another Name?
The country is divided, its people forced to choose between remaining with their King - or leaving the status quo behind. A bloody power struggle ensues.
It is December 1648, in the aftermath of the English Civil War.
King Charles is defeated and Oliver Cromwell must decide his fate – but the law is against him, his army is restless for justice - and Parliament is unable to reach a consensus. Death of The Monarchy explores the nature of power and the minds of those that seek it. Can we learn anything from our history? Or are we prisoners to the past?
