Charles, Joseph Fiennes and Kim Criswell will star in Happy Days in the Art World by Elmgreen & Dragset. It will preview at Tramway in Glasgow 21-22 October and premiere at the Skirball Center in New York 1-3 November (via the Independent).

Charles will play King George VI in a touring stage production of The King's Speech. It will premiere in Guildford and tour to Nottingham, Bath, Brighton, Richmond and Newcastle from February next year (Official London Theatre). Baz Bamigboye has further comments about the production:
As he [Matthew Byam Shaw, producer] so rightly put it, Edwards is ‘utterly charming, and a complete stage actor with an extraordinary range’.
Interestingly, he played Edward VIII in a TV drama [Bertie and Elizabeth] ten years ago. I’ve seen him in several productions and he always grabs your attention.
