Wolf Hall

Closed October 4, 2014

"Two fast, darkly comic plays that will not disappoint fans of modern political dramas such as House of Cards."

The Guardian

Why See Wolf Hall?

Limited run!

From humble beginnings to right hand man of the King, Wolf Hall is the story of Thomas Cromwell. History has not been very kind to him; his cunning and fixing has cast him as a Machiavellian character, pulling the strings of the Tudor administration.

But Hilary Mantel's Man Booker prize winning novel presents a lightly fictionalised account of the man himself, the star of a trilogy, the second of which, Bringing Up The Bodies, plays alongside Wolf Hall, in a powerful rep. After having seen sold out performances in Stratford on Avon, this long awaited West End transfer has been primped and streamlined, on course to being one of 2014's most enigmatic successes.

England, 1527

Whist navigating life in the Tudor court, Thomas Cromwell is an all-rounder. A lawyer, a tender family man and master politician, his unique talent for plotting sees his rise to the right hand man of Cardinal Wolsey. Surviving the other man's fall from favour is just the beginning for his personal agenda, which will take him into the very lap of power as advisor to Henry VIII, and change the course of British history forever.

Played to perfection by the chilling but charming Ben Miles, this twisting and darkly comic show is a heady rumination on ambition, revenge and power and absolutely not to be missed!
