Theatre company to perform Tudor play

Have your say

The story of one of Henry VIII’s six wives will be told in a theatre company’s latest play.

Stamford Shoestring Theatre will perform Howard Brenton’s Anne Boleyn at Stamford Arts Centre from June 18 to 22.

The play tells the story of a woman who defied convention to topple a queen and marry a king, only to be lost to the brutal world of power politics and the king’s obsessive need for a male heir.

Shoestring members are looking forward to offering an award-winning play to Stamford audiences.

Anne Boleyn won the What’s On-stage Theatregoer’s Choice Award for Best New Play 2011 and its recent nationwide tour won the Best Touring Production Award for 2012.
