If this not a historical rendition of the relationship between henry VIII and his last wife, it is history as we would have liked it to be. The play is beautifully constructed and grips your attention from the first word to the last. Kudos to author Kate Hennig on a new masterpiece. This will become a Canadian classic, but should play well in England as well.
This was a great cast with Maev Beatty in the starring role and Joseph Ziegler as Henry, Sara Farb as Mary and Bahia Watson as Elizabeth. Jonah Q Gribble was charming as Eddie and Gareth Potter suitably lovesick as Thom.
The setting was fascinating with a model of Hampton court hanging overhead, and a range of chairs moving around a table that was at times a bed, a table and anything else it needed to be.
