An audience with Henry VIII
An audience with Henry VIII

The 16th century will meet the 21st in a new comedy that stars Henry VIII.

An Audience with Henry VIII is a live production to be staged at Gretton Village Hall on Friday, February 5, starting at 7.30pm.

The new play has been written by Ross Gurney-Randall, who plays Henry VIII, and Pete Howells. The show has been directed by Tony Haase.

His Majesty does not have syphilis. He wants to make that quite clear.

And as for the wives – there were perfectly good reasons why they had to go. And if we’re asking the awkward questions, Henry has one for us, where is God? Henry has been waiting 468 years to meet God and he’s running out of patience.

Tickets are on sale now at £10 from Gretton Post Office or reserve from Andy Butterworth on 01536 770302.

This production is brought to you by The Foundry Group, Gretton Village Hall Entertainments and co-produced by RGR Productions. Suitable for ages 12 and above.

Proceeds are to bring more live productions to Gretton Village Hall.
