Shakespeare's Globe

Anne Boleyn [2012]

Written by: Howard Brenton
Directed by: John Dove

Hunting through an old chest, the newly crowned James I discovers the controversial legacy of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s notorious second wife. Time jumps back 70 years, when the witty and flirtatious Anne was in love with Henry, but also with the most dangerous ideas of her day. Conspiring with the exiled William Tyndale, she plots to make England Protestant – forever.

Anne Boleyn was produced in partnership with English Touring Theatre, and toured to 8 venues across the UK in Spring 2012.
