THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA B.F.A. ACTOR TRAINING PROGRAM PRESENTS

Anne Boleyn

by HOWARD BRENTON
directed by STEPHEN DiMENNA

A haunting historical drama

Henry VIII's notorious second wife, Anne Boleyn, changed the course of the England's history. In Howard Brenton's epic drama, the brilliant-but-reckless Anne, confident in her sexuality and her love for Henry, leads the 16th-century charge for England’s Protestant Reformation. Meanwhile, in 1603, King James I discovers Anne’s belongings while being haunted by her ghost, which inspires him to explore his own gender and sexuality. This production challenges the view of Anne Boleyn as a pawn of an ambitious family or a predator manipulating her way to power, revealing how disrupting the status quo made her lose her head.
