Henry VIII

See the story of Henry VIII from a female perspective as Shakespeare’s exploration of love, lineage and power, co-written with John Fletcher, unfolds in the Globe Theatre this Summer.

You know the story: a King who turns his country upside down to try and secure a male heir. But it’s never been told this way before…

A Queen fights for justice. A Lady provokes reformation. But in the absence of a son, can a Princess change the future?

Amy Hodge (Women Beware Women, Globe) directs this production which sees the Globe’s 2022 Resident Writer Hannah Khalil (A Museum in Baghdad) become Shakespeare and Fletcher’s third collaborator.

'Who knows yet
But from this Lady may proceed a gem
To lighten all this isle'
(Act II, scene 3)

  • Raucous good fun

    I loved this production. The cast were all charismatic, particularly the actor playing King Henry (even though he was the “understudy”). The actor who played Cardinal Wolsey was fantastic, he even cried on stage, I’ve never seen an actor do that live. The staging , music & costumes were spot on. I saw the play twice while on holiday in London, if I lived closer, I’d go again.

    Haven’t been to the globe for years-had forgotten how magical Shakespeare in its most original form (with a modern twist) could be. Bea Segura as Catherine of Aragon was exceptional-her light shone from the stage all evening. Echo-performing as a stand in Henry VII- what an amazing actor how is, had the audience in the palm of his hand. Excellent production. Very pleasantly surprised.

  • Empty pastiche production.

    28 June 2022

    It was one of the worst productions I have ever seen. The costumes where meaningless, cheap , no texture, no layers, left nothing for one the feel as if you were in a world for of mysteries and possibilities. Some actors had talent but lacked life experience to complete the task. There was little to no depth in their performance . The music was childish and embarrassing. We left after 45 minutes because the music was torture. If one had read Peter Brooks the empty space , this is clearly a dead space, dead theatre. You patronize and underestimate your audience. By that you destroy centuries of craftsmanship. The focus on gender is nauseating. As a woman I find it offensive that everything female is now sublime and raised above all. We are people like everyone else. I am for equal rights but not equal rights at the cost of quality. Not matter gender or race it should always be about quality. This production had none. And I would ask for my money back if I could. Juliana Venter Singer, composer , actress, activist.
