Stolen Shakespeare Festival: Wolf Hall
As part of the Stolen Shakespeare Festival, Stolen Shakespeare Guild presents Wolf Hall. Hilary Mantel's Thomas Cromwell novels are the most formidable literary achievements of recent times, both recipients of the Man Booker Prize. Adapted by Mike Poulton, Wolf Hall begins in England in 1527. Henry has been King for almost 20 years and is desperate for a male heir; but Cardinal Wolsey cannot deliver the divorce he craves. Yet for a man with the right talents, this crisis could be an opportunity. Thomas Cromwell is a commoner who has risen in Wolsey's household - and he will stop at nothing to secure the King's desires and advance his own ambitions.
The play will run in rep with Henry VIII.
