Spun as a bright web of tittle-tattle, "Wolf Hall" pours secrets of states and of stately boudoirs into your ears, while reminding you that well-wielded gossip can be a potent (and potentially lethal) political weapon.
Ben Brantley, New York Times
From humble beginnings to having the ear of a King, Wolf Hall is the story of Thomas Cromwell. History has not been very kind to him; his cunning and role as ingenious royal fixer has seen him often cast as a Machiavellian character, pulling the strings of the Tudor administration for his own ends...
This Tony Award-winning adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Man Booker Prize-winning novel presents a fictionalized account of the man himself, playing in rep with Part Two (also known as Bring up the Bodies) After having seen sold-out performances in Stratford on Avon and London's West End, this long-awaited Broadway transfer has been primped and streamlined to becoming one of 2015's most enigmatic successes. It scooped up an impressive eight Tony nominations, including Best Play, winning the 2015 Tony Award for Best Costume Design of a Play.
Whist navigating life in the Tudor court, Thomas Cromwell (Ben Miles) is an all-rounder. A lawyer, tender family man and master politician, his unique talent for courtly intrigue sees his rise to the right-hand man of Cardinal Wolsey. Managing to sidestep the other man's fall from grace is just the beginning for his personal agenda, which will take him into the very heart of power as adviser to Henry VIII (Nathaniel Parker), and change the course of British history forever.
This twisting and darkly comic show is a heady rumination on ambition, revenge and power and absolutely not to be missed!
