About Show

Show Details

Age Suitability


This play has its humble beginnings in a classroom at Cambridge University. A group of students conceptualized a modern retelling of the afterlife of six wives of Henry the VIII, for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It has since come to West End, and has been nominated for 5 Olivier Awards, and has won 3 Joseph Jefferson Equity Awards!

This quirky concept of bringing these ill-fated wives to life as pop singers is carried out masterfully by writers Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss with Jamie Armitage as co-director with Moss. Gabrielle Slade’s glittery costumes and Tim Delling’s arena-style lighting beautifully present a modernized twist on the 16th century esthetic.

The Story

Henry the VIII, despite his impressive list of achievements, is infamously known to be the wife killer. He married and beheaded 6 wives before passing away. This play is an attempt at understanding what the 6 went through but in a musical showdown.

The show starts with a musical battle between the 6 to determine who has had the worst experience in the hands of their husband. Through these battles, the show explores the themes of beauty and external validation in their times. Most importantly it explores the lack of agency women had in their lives. Ultimately the 6 realize how society functions and its impact on their lives. This show is the perfect example of lacing a poignant issue with comedy to make it more palpable.
