During Shakespeare's time, Henry VIII was regarded as the playwright’s most sumptuous and spectacular play.
The play is a gorgeous pageant of masques and royal ceremony; a blaze of fireworks, cannon fire, red satin and gold cloth.
Amongst the grandeur, you can recognise the mind of the mature Shakespeare. The work comprises psychological and political insight and language of great depth and power. It also includes two of his most vivid and memorable characters in the figures of Wolsey and Katherine.
