THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII

Theatre |
3rd October 2013

Two Actors. Too Many Characters. One Big Ego

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that.

Stu McLoughlin doesn't really look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard (Bristol Old Vic) and Stu (Kneehigh) are at their wits end.

Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything…

But can two of the South West’s favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other?

The Six Wives of Henry VIII was an undisputed hit at the Bristol Old Vic, and with live original music, embroidery, barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in cross-dressing Tudor history that you'll never forget.

“Cleverly written, beautifully acted, and, dare I say it, educational. Howard and Stu are a double act to keep a beady eye on…both actors perform with bounds of enthusiasm, wit and technical skill; their versatility and range is outstanding.” – Bristol Evening Post

“Hysterically funny…left me with aching cheeks from laughing so much” StageWon

The best 100 minute comedy show outside of the Edinburgh Fringe. With a seamless blend of bluesy songs, wonderful one-liners and a script that constantly surprised ‘The Six Wives of Henry VIII’ is a show that deserves a wider audience.”Western Daily Press
