In honour of the last and surviving wife of the notorious King Henry VIII, Sudeley Castle and Gardens will be rounding off its Queen Katherine Parr Quincentenary Festival this year on a lighter note, when it plays host to a one-woman performance of The Sixth Wife.
Performed by actor and historical researcher Alison Neil, the play, which is set to take place in the Mulberry Lawn Marquee on Monday 17 September 2012, is said to be a witty piece in which Katherine Parr tells her own story to the audience.
Visitors can expect to brush up on their Tudor history and learn all about the life of this celebrated Queen in The Sixth Wife – from her four marriages to her love affair with Thomas Seymour, two indictments for treason to helping form the new religion of England.
Organisers said: ‘In this fast-moving and entertaining play, Katherine casts her witty, observant eye over the turbulent Tudor age; and shows how a ‘mere woman’ could shape the mind of a King – and the future of a nation.’
Promising nothing less than an evening of cultured entertainment, they urge readers to book tickets early and avoid disappointment for what’s expected to be a major highlight of the Quincentenary Festival.
