‘POWERFULLY MAKES THE CASE FOR AN OUTING TO THE WEST END’
EXTRA PERFORMANCES ADDED DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND.
The highly anticipated final chapter of Hilary Mantel's WOLF HALL TRILOGY has opened to rave reviews in London’s West End.
‘HILARY MANTEL COMPLETES A MAGNIFICENT THEATRICAL HAT-TRICK’
England, 1536. Anne Boleyn’s fate has been sealed by the executioner. Jane Seymour must deliver King Henry a healthy heir. And to the disgust of Henry’s nobles, Thomas Cromwell continues his ruthless ascent from the gutters of Putney to the highest rank beside his master. But Cromwell is vulnerable and his enemies are poised to strike.
‘A LAST TUDOR TOUR DE FORCE’
‘The essence of the thing is not to judge with hindsight, from the lofty perch of the 21st century. It’s to be there with them - in the king’s rooms where the secrets are spilled, in the council chamber where they scrap over the future of the nation. We move forward with them into a future that is not predetermined, but where chance and hazard will play a vital role.’
Running Time: Approximately 2 hours 35 minutes including interval
