But Howard Coggins and Stuart McLoughlin can no longer rely on apparent physical resemblances to Tudor monarchs. They've done (The Six Wives of) Henry VIII, and the truth is neither of them look like anyone else. But they won't be deterred.

Running time: 2hrs (inc. interval). Age recommendation 12+ Salberg Studio
