But the third act redeems by showing the consequences of self-indulgence and selfishness, as the couples at the center and their two children move through the decades. The author of “King Charles III,” Mike Bartlett is well-served by director Michael Mayer (known for his Rat Pack version of “Rigoletto” at the Met). Zoe Kazan stands out as the put-upon daughter. One comes away reinforced in the view that the 1960s have a lot to answer for, while also dramatizing the real issue of a generation doing less well than their parents.
