The Last Wife

Date: 20 Jul 2019

In a deadly game of power, intrigue and passion, Kate Parr must live by her wits if she wants to avoid becoming another statistic on Henry’s growing list of dead wives.

With stepdaughters, step-sisters and the very crown at stake, it will take a woman of immense courage to initiate change.

Can Kate remain steadfast as she navigates the treacherous waters of gender politics, or will she succumb to the might of Henry’s increasing paranoia?

Kate Hennig’s debut play reimagines the dangerous sparring between Henry VIII and Katherine Parr through a provocative contemporary lens.

Nikki Shiels and Ben Wood feature.
