Last night began our 19th season.
19 years of producing smart, gutsy, bold theatre which uplifts the voices of women and girls.
The play? Anne Boleyn by Howard Brenton.
As our Director Richard Garner said, everyone has an opinion on Anne. In just the past week he has been treated to opinions by a 16-year old girl and a 91-year old neighbor. They were both passionately committed to their idea of Anne, their understanding of her and her intentions.
This play is historically accurate. In as much as we know. But because Anne’s (and Henry’s) history is so contradictory and dynamic, this play will provoke you to revise, examine and delight in the complexity.
It will also make you laugh. Whoo boy, do we have a great group of actors. The first ‘table read’ was already rich with humor, heat and heartbreak.
Check out our set, designed by Barrett Doyle, below. And get a peek at some of the talented folks around our table.
