From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the Six wives of Henry VIII take the mic to tell their tale, remixing five hundred years of her-storical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of sisterly sass-itude. Powered by an all-female band and with songs including Ex Wives, Haus of Holbein and Don’t Lose Ur Head.
Prior to the West End season at the Arts Theatre, Six will run at Norwich Playhouse (11-14 July) and Cambridge Arts Theatre (17-21 July) and following last year’s sell-out run it will return to the Edinburgh Fringe to the main Underbelly purple cow in George Square (1-27 August).
Six is a co-production between Kenny Wax and Global Musicals. Wendy Barnes of Global Musicals said: “Kenny, Andy and I saw the previous production independently of each other but we were all immediately blown away by the funny, relevant humour and infectious score that these two young talents had created. We are proud to debut their first musical and begin an ambitious and exciting journey for the piece, which is particularly relevant at this time as we strive for female equality and empowerment. These women were so much more than history would have us believe.”
Six is at The Arts Theatre 30th August – 23rd September, full tour details can be found here. Tickets will be on sale for London and Edinburgh from 10am Thurday 19 April.
