A performance of William Shakespeare's Henry VIII, filmed at the Globe Theatre in London in 2010.
Henry VIII is one of Shakespeare’s final plays, a political thriller based on the power struggle between the Tudor court and the eponymous king’s ambitious first minister, Cardinal Wolsey. Though famous in its own time as the most extravagant of the playwright’s creations, the work is hardly performed today - Mark Rosenblatt’s spectacular 2010 production was the Globe Theatre’s first staging of the historical drama since 1613 and, featuring stellar performances from Dominic Rowan, Miranda Raison and Anthony Howell, it bursts with intrigue.
Henry VIII (Dominic Rowan) is involved in a passionate tryst with Anne Boleyn (Miranda Raison). Political intrigue in the court, however, threatens to disrupt the affair. The powerful Cardinal Wolsey (Ian McNeice) convinces Queen Katherine (Kate Duchene) to interfere in the affair, in the hope of strengthening the position of the Catholic Church in England. Perhaps the pair have underestimated the love Henry has for Anne Boleyn, as the King hatches a plan to free himself from the dominion of Rome...
