The Olivier and Tony Award-winning Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies were hailed as landmark and must-see theatrical events. The highly anticipated final chapter of Hilary Mantel's WOLF HALL TRILOGY plays until 23 January 2022.

Hilary Mantel and Ben Miles join forces to adapt the exhilarating conclusion of this thrilling story for the London stage, with Ben Miles reprising his “astonishing performance” (Daily Telegraph) as the legendary Thomas Cromwell. Nathaniel Parker returns to his Olivier Award-winning performance as Henry VIII.

If you cannot speak truth at a beheading, when can you speak it?

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.
The further you climb, the harder you fall.

Director Jeremy Herrin (This House, People, Places & Things, Labour of Love) and Designer Christopher Oram (Red, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Peter and Alice) reunite to take audiences racing through the courts of Hilary Mantel’s Sunday Times best-seller.

‘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.’
Hilary Mantel
