Anne Boleyn celebrates the life and legacy of a great English heroine - traditionally seen as either the beautiful and virtuous victim of a tyrant husband, or as an ambitious and ruthless reformist manipulating her way into power.
But Brenton puts a very different Anne - and her ghost - on the Globe stage. Witty, flirtatious and confident, she's in love with Henry but also with the most dangerous ideas of her day. Conspiring with the exiled William Tyndale, Anne plots to produce a Bible that everyone can read - a translation that will permit her marriage to Henry, haunt her daughter's successor, and transform Britain forever.
