The Six Wives of Henry VIII
‘an ill-researched lesson in Tudor history that you'll never forget’
Triumphantly making their way back to Bristol after a knock-out Ed Fringe run during the summer and nationwide tour, Howard Coggins and Stuart McLoughlin perform The Six Wives of Henry VIII at the Tobacco Factory on 29th January. It sold out during it's first run in the Brewery Theatre last summer, so chances are it’s going to be a squeeze to get a ticket this time around for this highly-acclaimed show of ‘historical hysteria’.
The idea was born in the triumphant realisation that Howard Coggins uncannily resembles Henry VIII... cue a comedic performance with ‘live original music, embroidery, Barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria’ where Stuart McLaughlin attempts to perform all six roles of Henry’s Wives with sparkling effect (apparently ‘Howard maintains that Stu bears an uncanny resemblence to Ann of Cleves, but Stu doesn't really see it’).
The reviews in Edinburgh raved about its tongue-in-cheek hilarity, brilliant live-music (including an intriguing reference to Kraftwerk) and clever, and almost educational, script which was ‘immature (in a good way)’ (Fringe Guru). With such a fantastic background of sparkling reviews – the Ed Fringe can really make or break a show – this is sure to be a night not to miss out on at the Tobacco Factory.
