Royal Gambit

Written by: Hermann Gressieker & George White
Directed by: Kathy Currie



Guided by era-changing costumes and evolving feminine wiles, two-step through time with King Henry VIII and his Queens:  Katarina of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Kathryn Howard, and Kathryn Parr.

This drama of their lives, loves, wiles and woes has been on Kathy Currie’s bucket list to direct since playing Anna of Cleves at the UW in 1970. Henry VIII and the stories of his wives have captivated us for centuries.  Royal Gambit brings their familiar story to life in a clever way.  Our audiences will thoroughly enjoy this unique production.
