Anne Boleyn – theatre trip
Theatre trip to Grand Theatre, Blackpool
28 March 2012
Following two sell-out London seasons, the English Touring Theatre (ETT) and Shakespeare’s Globe join forces to stage this vivid and vibrant production of Anne Boleyn, by English playwright Howard Brenton, at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool. Compelling, witty and often laugh-out-loud funny, this celebration of a great English heroine, Anne Boleyn leaps cunningly between generations to reveal the debt the outrageous yet scholarly James I owed to Anne when he reconciled England’s religious factions by creating his common, ‘authorised’ Bible. Hunting through an old chest, the newly crowned James discovers the controversial legacy of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s notorious second wife. Time jumps back 70 years, when the witty and flirtatious Anne was in love with Henry, but also with the most dangerous ideas of her day. Conspiring with the exiled William Tyndale, she plots to make England Protestant. For ever.
Fifty seats have been reserved in the middle stalls (rows H-K on both sides of the aisle). The coach will start collecting theatregoers at the Assembly Rooms, Lytham with various pick-up points along Clifton Drive and will drop you off at the same pick-up points on the return trip.
