Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 tells the story of England’s great king, Henry VIII, through the eyes of his advisor Thomas Cromwell. Cromwell, who at first was much favored by Henry, and later was betrayed and executed by his king, tried to please his king while championing reform. Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 invites audiences to be part of a exceptional theatrical event, similar to the Royal Shakespeare Company's award winning production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. Both parts of the production can either be seen in one day with a dinner break of approximately two-and-a-half hours, or can be seen on two different days. The production features a company of more than twenty actors, headed by Ben Miles as Thomas Cromwell, Lydia Leonard as Anne Boleyn, and Nathaniel Parker as King Henry VIII.
