Following the huge success of the multi-award-winning 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies', the RSC and Playful Productions now present the much-anticipated conclusion to the trilogy as The Mirror and the Light, the final chapter of the WOLF HALL TRILOGY, from the pen of Hilary Mantel will showcase at the Gielgud Theatre this September.
Ben Miles and Hilary Mantel have joined forces to adapt the fast-paced exhilarating conclusion of this thrilling story for the West End stage, with Ben Miles reprising his role asThomas Cromwell.
"If you cannot speak truth at a beheading, when can you speak it?"
The scene is set in England, 1536, and Anne Boleyn’s fate has been sealed by the executioner. Jane Seymour must provide King Henry an heir to the throne, and much to the disgust of the nobles, in court, Thomas Cromwell continues his meteoric and ruthless ascent from the gutters of Putney to the highest rank in the land beside his master. But as invasion looms, and the legacy of the King tottering on the edge, Cromwell looks vulnerable and his many enemies circling and seem poised to strike.
The higher you climb, the harder you may fall.
Director Jeremy Herrin and Designer Christopher Oram reunite once again to take audiences racing through the blistering courts of Hilary Mantel’s best-seller.
