Why See Wolf Hall - Part Two?
Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Costume design
Now that we have seen Cromwell gaining the ear of a King, Wolf Hall Part Two sees the ingenious royal fixer has become the epitome of the Machiavellian anti-hero, pulling the strings of the Tudor monarchy for his own purposes.
This Tony Award-winning adaptation of Hilary Mantel's second Man Booker Prize-winning novel presents a fictionalized account of the man himself, playing in rep with Part One. After seeing 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.
WHAT IS WOLF HALL: PART TWO ABOUT?
Cromwell's scheming and plotting has seen him rise stratospherically through the Tudor court of Henry VIII, replacing his mentor Cardinal Wolsley as the king's right-hand man. Having orchestrated the divorce of Henry from Katherine of Aragon and the cataclysmic split from the Catholic Church in Rome, his scheming sees England dangerously isolated from other European states.
With Anne Boleyn now Queen, the wait is on to secure a male heir for Henry's lineage. But the King's eye is already wandering, and Cromwell now finds himself in a precarious position; can our ambitious manipulator maintain his role in a newly dangerous court, where suspicion reigns more than ever?
