HENRY VIII AND HIS SIX WIVES
A classic Tudor tale, exploring the notorious life of Henry VIII ( Keith Michell, Captain James Cook), his thirty-eight years on the throne, his obsession with producing a son to continue his reign - Henry VIII And His Six Wives is a personal study of Henry's tumultuous campaign as King of England.
Known for his severe womanising, drinking and violent mood swings Henry was constantly disagreeing with Rome. This led him to segregate England from Catholic religion, dissolve Catholic monasteries and install himself as the head of the Church of England.
During his pursuit of an heir to rule his kingdom Henry sought the legal counsel of Cardinal Wolsey (John Bryans) who helped Henry to find ways of passing new laws and helped convict two of his wives to their bloody beheadings.
Also featuring Charlotte Rampling (Melancholia), Jane Asher (Alfie) and Donald Pleasence (The Great Escape), Henry VIII And His Six Wives is an engaging historical account of early Tudor life detailing the rule of one of England's most famous Kings.
