This stunning historical drama in the spirit of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, reimagines the dangerous sparring between King Henry VIII and Katherine Parr through a richly provocative contemporary lens.
In a deadly game of power, intrigue and passion, Kate Parr must live by her wits if she wants to avoid becoming another statistic on Henry’s growing list of dead wives. With stepdaughters, step-sisters and the very crown at stake, it will take a woman of immense courage to initiate change.
Can Kate remain steadfast as she navigates the treacherous waters of gender politics, or will she succumb to the might of Henry’s increasing paranoia?
Kate Hennig’s stunning debut play reimagines the dangerous sparring between Henry VIII and Katherine Parr through a richly provocative contemporary lens. Huw Higginson (THE KITCHEN SINK) and Ursula Yovich (STC’s THE SECRET RIVER) join an accomplished ensemble cast in a tale that is at once funny, seductive and deliciously thrilling.

“A fresh take on this bloody stretch of English history, and a very smart piece of writing” The Chicago Tribune
"Very simple yet very complex and very daring... superb" The Toronto Star
“This is a thrilling roller coaster of a play with the wise, funny, liberated Katie Parr in the driving seat against the unpredictable roguish Henry. For anyone who likes Wolf Hall and the drama of living on instincts this is for you. And with this exceptional cast it’s going to be a bumpy night.”
Mark Kilmurry – Artistic Director
