Traditionally seen as a pawn manoeuvred into Henry VIII's bed by an ambitious father and his friends, or as a sexually licentious predator, even a witch, Anne Boleyn in Brenton's new play is shown to be witty and confident in her sexuality, as she takes on the vicious world of Tudor Court politics. She is in love with Henry - but also in love with the most dangerous ideas of her day.
HOWARD BRENTON's early plays were produced at the Royal Court, RSC and National Theatre, where Romans in Britain (1980) was famously prosecuted by Mary Whitehouse. More recently he became the lead writer on TV's Spooks, before a triumphant return to the stage with Paul (2005) and Never So Good (2008) at the National Theatre and In Extremis (2006) at Shakespeare's Globe.
