Her-story is being recreated Tudor-style with punk gowns and diva impersonations in this epic musical, Six. The six wives of King Henry VIII have been reduced to just a word in a Kindergarten poem, ‘Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded, Survived.’ But, there is more to these wives, what if they expressed themselves? These wives form the ultimate girl band ala the Spice Girls and grab the microphone to sing out their woes, argue, sympathize, and finally get their say! The musical written by young writers Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, is a feminist (and fun) take at one of the most regressive periods in history.
This guide offers all the information you need to know about Six along with helping you purchase discounts tickets for the show.
About the Show
Six first featured on the Edinburgh Fringe festival, a brave attempt at mixing musical theatre with period drama. The music and lyrics are written by the first-time duo, Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who bring their 21st century feminist and progressive ideas to give the Queens a voice. The soundtrack is rousing, and the cast is packed with brilliant singers and actors who truly manifest their inner Queen for the show. Jarneia Noel, Millie O’Connell, Natalie Paris, Alexia Mcintosh, Aimie Atkinson, and Maiya Breed take the stage in this musical riot and make it a glorious spectacle!
Six, Divorced & Beheaded, Live in Concert is an all-out musical extravaganza about the six wives of King Henry VIII. The musical is a rock concert featuring the six wives, who sing about their lives and how unfair the King and history have treated them. With solo songs and group numbers, the women out-do each other’s tragedy and narrate which one of their fate’s is worse.
King Henry VIII’s six wives suffered terrible fates, and were Katherine of Aragon (Divorced), Anne Boleyn (Beheaded), Jane Seymour (Died), Anne of Cleves (Divorced), Catherine Howard (Beheaded), and Catherine Parr who was the only one who survived the King and went on to marry another man.
The company music numbers include songs ‘Ex-Wives’, ‘Haus of Holbein,’ and ‘Six,’ while the individual numbers reflect the personalities of each of the wives and encapsulate their rage and chance at history.
Children under 10 will not be admitted.
