Divorced, Beheaded, Died - An audience with Henry VIII
Written by John White
Performed by Jack Abbot
The year is 1544 and King Henry, the Eighth of that name, is engaged upon Royal Progress about his Realm; and has halted here to afford his Loyal Subjects the opportunity to have 'audience' with their Sovereign Lord and King.
The King, recently married to his new, and sixth, wife, Queen Catherine Parr, is in poor health; his leg continues to cause him considerable pain and he is often in a poor humour!
In the course of the 'audience', His Majesty will recount the events of his long reign; telling of his wives and his children, and His Majesty will invite his Loyal Subjects to Petition him or question him on ANY related subject: there may be some surprising answers – a lively Q&A is assured!’
What a superb show! It was hard to believe we were not in the presence of the formidable monarch himself… a pitch-perfect performance… the audience were enthralled… do not miss a chance to see such a first-class performance.
