September 23 - November 28, 2021

Hilary Mantel's award-winning trilogy may have come to an end on the page, but fear ye not, The Mirror and the Light, the final novel is to be translated to the stage this winter, courtesy of the Royal Shakespeare Company. With Ben Miles reprising his role as machiavellian Chief Minister to Henry VIII, Thomas Cromwell, (and also co-adapting alongside Mantel), and Nathaniel Parker back as the ultimate Tudor monarch, The Mirror and the Light is sure to repeat the success of the Wolf Hall and Bringing Up The Bodies stage adaptations, as THE play of the season.
