By William Shakespeare
Translation by Caridad Svich
Caridad Svich offers a new take on the history play, which tells the story of Henry VIII’s marriage to Anne Boleyn.
Shakespeare’s Henry VIII is a story of a brazen race to power and the desire for an heir. Advised by Cardinal Wolsey, Henry VIII is caught between church and state as he meets Anne Boleyn and seeks to annul his marriage to Queen Katherine. This episodic and plot-driven play examines the machinations of royal power. Shakespeare’s Henry VIII, in this new translation by Caridad Svich, is a swift-moving, complex tale of intrigue.
