A new, revised edition for the London
transfer of Mike Poulton's expertly adapted two-part adaptation of
Hilary Mantel's hugely acclaimed novels, featuring a substantial set of
character notes by Hilary Mantel. Mike Poulton's 'expertly adapted'
(Evening Standard) two-part adaptation of Hilary Mantel's acclaimed
novels 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies' is a gripping piece of
narrative theatre ...history made manifest' (Guardian). The plays were
premiered to great acclaim by the Royal Shakespeare Company in
Stratford-upon-Avon in 2013, before transferring to the Aldwych Theatre
in London's West End in May 2014. 'Wolf Hall' begins in England in 1527.
Henry has been King for almost twenty years and is desperate for a male
heir, but Cardinal Wolsey is unable to deliver the divorce he craves.
Yet for a man with the right talents this crisis could be an
opportunity. Thomas Cromwell is a commoner who has risen in Wolsey's
household - and he will stop at nothing to secure the King's desires and
advance his own ambitions. In 'Bring Up the Bodies', the volatile Anne
Boleyn is now Queen, her career seemingly entwined with that of
Cromwell.But when the King begins to fall in love with
self-effacing Jane Seymour, the ever-pragmatic Cromwell must negotiate
within an increasingly perilous Court to satisfy Henry, defend the
nation and, above all, to secure his own rise in the world. Hilary
Mantel's novels are the most formidable literary achievements of recent
times, both recipients of the Man Booker Prize. This volume contains
both plays and a substantial set of notes by Hilary Mantel on each of
the principal characters, offering a unique insight into the adaptations
and an invaluable resource to any theatre companies wishing to stage
