Tour archive for Henry VIII (Play). 5th June 2002-29th June 2002 [TOUR]


Henry VIII archiveThe Famous History of the Life of Henry VIII (or All is True). A rarely performed Shakespearean historical play. The events of Henry's last 25 years, love, intrigue, war with France, Wolsey and the break with Rome. A scorching new reworking of Shakespeare's classic text for Golden Jubilee year. The mind and body of a hot-blooded young King are the prize in a vicious three-way power struggle between his queen Katherine, his mistress Anne, and the ruthlesssly ambitious Cardinal Wolsey - one of Shakespeare's most gloriously despicable villains. At stake are marriages, empires, careers - and necks! Shakespeare's rarely performed dramatisation of the political and sexual intrigue surrounding the first two wives of England's most volatile monarch has been dragged out of the mothballs of period costume, and cut into a new, fast moving, sexually charged thriller set in our contemporary world of SEX, SLEAZE, PALACE SCANDAL and POLITICAL SPIN.
