13 Jun Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies’ Run Extended

Currently playing at the Aldwych Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company have announced a four week extension to the run of their productions of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. Both will now close on Saturday 4th October 2014.

The productions are based on Hilary Mantel’s popular books of the same names, telling the story of the Thomas Cromwell’s rise to power in the court of Henry VIII. Set in Tudor England, we meet the King married to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, desperately pursuing the birth of a living male heir. Cardinal Wolsey is handed the challenge of managing the volatile relationship between the King and the Pope, to facilitate the annulment of his marriage to Catherine. Into this turbulent court enters Thomas Cromwell, a blacksmith’s boy intent on climbing the social ladder.

Adapted by Mike Poulton and directed by Jeremy Herrin, the shows transferred to the Aldwych from Stratford-upon-Avon following an extremely popular and successful run.
