A room in the Banqueting House, Whitehall in London. Before midnight, 29th January 1649. In the morning King Charles I will face the executioner. The Parliamentarians have won. Through his last long night, the King thinks back across the events that led to this end. His friend Oglander from the Isle of Wight has sent a manservant to keep the King company, someone to listen, not to speak. From his childhood in Scotland, his coronation, the uprisings and the long Civil War, Charles considers how many things have gone wrong, how so much might have been different.
