NEARLY A SILVER WEDDING by Diana Moore

Synopsis:  Katherine of Aragon is fighting a battle to keep hold of her man. With the help of her jolly jester-cum-counsellor, the Queen of England plans to give Henry VIII a Silver Wedding he'll never forget - and a much longed for son and heir. But Henry is getting impatient; his roving eye is fixated on the lively, alluring, Lady Anne Boleyn. Is there a way for Katherine to win the day?

It's time to toss away your text books and experience this alternative take on history.

'Marvellous, fluid, funny, pantomimic in style. Could also be used as a Theatre in Education piece to give history an appealing spin'  
Ade Morris, Watermill Theatre, Newbury
