West Coast Premiere
This contemporary re-imagining of the compelling relationship between Henry VIII and his last wife, Katherine Parr, is a witty and powerful examination of sexual politics and women's rights. It's a high stakes game of chess, with Henry's offspring, Mary, Elizabeth, and Edward as pawns.
"The show is stimulating... Surviving a tyrant was far from her only achievement." - The Chicago Tribune
