From the venue:Howard Brentonâ€™s Anne Boleyn is a fresh, tantalizing take on a familiar tale of romance, betrayal and political intrigue. Devout as she is ambitious, Anne navigates courtly love, lust and lies to secure not only her own marriage to King Henry VIII, but a Protestant reformation. Anne fulfills her calling to be Englandâ€™s first Protestant queen, but keeping her crown â€“ and her head â€“ is a different matter. Brenton, recasts Anne Boleyn as a devout Protestant whose royal ambitions are fueled by a desire for reformation as well as romance. Anne's perspective is central in the play, and she finally gets a chance to tell her side of the story. This will be only the second time the play has been produced in the United States.
