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