Anne Boleyn (2013)

May 11th to 18th 2013

Written by Howard Brenton

Directed by Jane Railton

Traditionally seen as a pawn manoeuvred into Henry VIII's bed by an ambitious father and his friends, or as a sexually licentious predator, even a witch, Anne Boleyn here is shown to be witty and confident in her sexuality, as she takes on the vicious world of Tudor Court politics. She is in love with Henry - but also in love with the most dangerous ideas of her day. Howard Brenton's astonishing drama memorably brings to life a brilliant but reckless young woman, whose marriage and death transformed England for ever.
