She was nineteen years old when Henry began his pursuit which culminated in her decapitation ten years later during which time she erotically kidnapped the King, overturned the power of the Roman Catholic Church in England, gave birth to a daughter who would become the greatest monarch in the history of Great Britain, deposed of her Royal predecessor and the old cow's daughter acquiring their 250 servants as her own, re-established diplomatic relations with France, spent millions of pounds amassing a staggeringly glamorous wardrobe and five times as much re-decorating her three castles, became fluent in most of the languages in Europe, married the already married King five months pregnant, re-married him after triumphing over the Pope, established her father as the most powerful Duke in the Kingdom, advanced her womanizing brother to the King's Privy Council, eradicated the terrifyingly powerful Cardinal Wolsey, ended the life of the great Saint and scholar, Thomas Moore and ushered in the Protestant Reformation all the while transforming the dowdy English Court with glittering French fashion and sensual anthropology.
It took Anne Boleyn ten years to get everything on earth.
It took Henry eighteen days to reclaim it.
Not a fair fight.
This is an extremely daring play about those ten years and eighteen days.
Scored by the Billboard Top Ten Hits of 1536 and 2013, it has been directed by Jen Wineman within an inch of its life.
