Anne Boleyn – at Guildburys Picnic Theatres in Surrey. July 2018

“Rich, sprightly, and unfailingly vivid” – Time Out.



We all know who Anne Boleyn was… don’t we?
Maybe it’s time to think again.

From the mind of Howard Brenton, arguably Britain’s greatest living playwright, comes an altogether different look at the life of King Henry VIII’s most notorious wife.

From their first meeting to her untimely end, nothing is as simple as our schoolteachers would have had us believe. And Anne may have had more of an impact on our present day lives than we ever appreciated. Moving effortlessly between comedy and tragedy, fear and hope, James I and Henry VIII, this smart and mesmerising production is the perfect intelligent accompaniment to a summer evening picnic in beautiful surroundings.
