An Audience with Henry VIII

His Majesty does not have syphilis. He wants to make that quite clear. And as for the wives – there were perfectly good reasons why they had to go. And if we’re asking the awkward questions, Henry has one for us where is God? Henry has been waiting 468 years to meet God and he’s running out of patience. The 16th century King meets a 21st Century audience. Heads will roll. This new show from a multi-award-winning team was a sell out with added dates at Brighton Fringe and won a standing ovation for every performance at Kansas City International Theatre Festival. 


‘From the moment King Henry VIII storms the stage he rules the house. Ross Gurney-Randall makes a larger than life and imposing King – he delivers pure entertainment. It’s a delightful performance.’ – The Pitch, Kansas City

‘The show, in short, is anything but dry history. It’s a comic romp that at times achieves palpable poignancy.’ – Kansas City Star
