Brenton’s Anne is daring and politically astute. Played by Miranda Raison (of Spooks and Married Single Other fame), she is shown to be a key player in both affairs of the court and of the heart. Told through a non-linear chronology, Anne Boleyn is the story of a woman who is not afraid to confront danger.
Directed by John Dove (who also directed Brenton’s In Extremis in 2006/07), the production opened at the Globe on 24 July and runs until 21 August.
With the volatile relationships of the play matched with the unpredictable setting of the Globe, does Anne Boleyn convince the critics?
