About this show

Probably Shakespeare's last play, Henry VIII is a sumptuous feast of rite and ritual, encompassing a lethal struggle for power and influence over the King's soul. The first of Henry's wives puts up a valiant fight while the second waits in the wings. The great Wolsey falls and Protestantism is born, all while Shakespeare pays homage to his patron, Queen Elizabeth. This seldom-produced history play is packed with intrigue and churns with brilliant language to tell a story that still resonates.
