Royal Gambit

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


This metaphysical portrait of Henry VIII and the six women in his life contrasts this king, the epitome of Renaissance man, with modern liberal thought and concludes that humanism is dead in the twentieth century. Henry remains the same throughout but the women progress in their dress to modern times, showing their knowledge of the lasting effects of Henry's thoughts.

"Original, stimulating and mature.... A compact, well written play that asks some cogent questions and provides disturbing answers." - N.Y. Times.

This will be presented in an enhanced play-reading format.
