One King. Three Wives. No Male Heir. One Ruthless, Ambitious Fixer. Henry VIII’s desperate
quest for a son collides with first wife Katherine’s Catholic faith and political backing. Second
wife Anne Boleyn’s seductive ambition and Protestant zeal are no match for the King’s enigmatic
fixer, Thomas Cromwell, who clears the way for Henry to pursue wife number three, Jane Seymour
in hopes of fathering a son and heir. Featuring a cast of 25, Parts I and II will run in repertory.

“Thrilling, riveting & fun.” – New York Times

“Stunning, clever & addictive.” – Associated Press, USA

“Jam-packed with lust, greed, & betrayal.” – New York Post

“A fast-paced, fiendishly engaging political thriller.” – Time Out, NYC

Game of Thrones and Wolf Hall: surprisingly similar ... much in common” – The Telegraph, UK

“For sex, betrayal, revenge, murder, political gameship, and melodramatic reversals of fortune, House of Cards has nothing on this play.” –Vogue, USA

This marks the first American production of Wolf Hall and the only production to date internationally since the Royal Shakespeare Company's world premiere.

Part I: Wolf Hall

The court of Henry VIII is in utter upheaval as the King rages over his lack of a male heir. The shrewd and ambitious Thomas Cromwell inserts himself into the political scene to help the king pursue his passion for Anne Boleyn and secure an annulment from Katherine of Aragon.

Part II: Bring Up the Bodies

Part II charts Anne's downfall, the rise of Jane Seymour, and Cromwell's alliances with his greatest enemies.

Children under the age of 5 are not allowed in the theater.
