Large Mixed Cast

Mike Poulton from Hilary Mantel Price: $16.20

** BARGAIN BUNDLE + 10% DISCOUNT **

This BARGAIN BUNDLE offers both Part One (Wolf Hall) & Part 2 (Bring Up the Bodies) ACTING EDITIONS of Mike Poulton's acclaimed adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Man Booker Prize-winning novel

The First Part - WOLF HALL - begins in England in 1527

King Henry VIII needs a male heir

His anger grows as months pass without the divorce he craves

Into this volatile court enters the commoner Thomas Cromwell

Once a mercenary and now a master politician, he sets out to grant King Henry’s desire

As well as methodically and ruthlessly pursuing his own Reforming agenda

In Part Two - BRING UP THE BODIES - Anne Boleyn is now queen, her path to Henry's side cleared by Cromwell

But Henry still needs a male heir, and he begins to fall in love with the seemingly plain Jane Seymour

Cromwell must negotiate an increasingly perilous court to satisfy Henry and defend the nation

And advance his own ambitions

REVIEWS

"…fiercely intelligent …" ~ Variety

"…opens like ‘House of Cards' and ends like 'Game of Thrones' … Mike Poulton's adaptations keep the language accessible and the political context lucid enough for a general audience ... surprisingly funny … elegantly done … History repeats itself, first as farce, then as tragedy … masterful … highly satisfying" ~ The Hollywood Reporter

"… a taut intelligence, and a subtle awareness of the parallels between Tudor times and our own … their verve, intelligence and wit are exhilarating" ~ The Telegraph

"… absolute dramatic clarity with tantalizing historical ambiguity" ~ Guardian

NB : THE BARGAIN BUNDLE PRICE IS FOR BOTH ACTING EDITIONS
