7pm, June 20 - June 22, King's Manor, York
Created by and premiered at Shakespeare’s Globe, Anne Boleyn, written by Howard Brenton, explores the life of the English court at a time of ambition, battle, power and lust. It displays with great detail the politics of both people and nation alongside the prominence of religion; the foundations of society. This production introduces us to Anne Boleyn: young, fearless and provocative, Anne's aspirations to rule the heart of the King leave her fighting for the crown of the Queen. Set in an original open-air Tudor courtyard, the performance is fast-paced, witty and utterly immersive.
