Globe Theatre’s Summer 2022 production of Henry VIII

We all know the story of Henry VIII, but this new production gives us a chance to see the story unfold from a female perspective. This exploration of love, lineage and power comes to Shakespeare’s Globe and uses a new lens through which to view the familiar tale.

The basics of the story as we know it are the same, a King who turns his kingdom on its head in his deparate attempt to secure a male heir to the thrown. However, the story has most often been told through the eyes of men.

It is a Queen who fights for justice and a Lady who provokes reformation. In the absence of a son or Prince will a Princess be able to change the future?

In 1613 a performance of Henry VIII ended with the Globe Theatre burnt to the ground. Now that Shakespeare’s exploration of power and love has a new lens, you won’t want to wait to see what type of sparks it ignites.
