King Henry VIII A Brief and Unreliable History
by Geoff Bamber

Produced & Directed by Lin Bowden & Pete Williamson

The action of the play takes place in and around the Tudor court during Henry's early life and during his reign as Henry VIII. It is a modern twist on the well-known history of Henry but, as the title suggests, the portrayal can't be guaranteed for its historical accuracy!
