Six very different women once were married to a man they could not defy, just like Henry VIII. They tell their lives in monologues that follow a predictable course. We laugh at their self-delusion and anger but feel awkward at their grief. They don’t move much, except at scene changes, yet there is plenty of action, sparks still fly and feathers ruffle. Like husband Henry, it’s not all on stage.
With a witty script, strongly defined female characters, tragedy, lust and a lightness of touch, this play is full of surprises. Part of a double bill, it’s an excellent evening.
