The RSC's epic two-part adaptation of Hilary Mantel's historical series is 'doggedly enjoyable'
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Anne Boleyn is now Queen, her path to Henry's side cleared by Thomas Cromwell. But Henry remains without a male heir, and the conflict with the Catholic Church has left England dangerously isolated as France and the Holy Roman Empire ominously manoeuvre for position.
Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies paint the compelling portrait of the political rise to power of Thomas Cromwell in the Tudor Court.
