Playful Productions and the RSC present the highly anticipated final chapter of the WOLF HALL TRILOGY, at the Gielgud Theatre, with Hilary Mantel and Ben Miles joining forces to adapt the exhilarating and fast-paced conclusion of Mantel’s Sunday Times best-seller.

England, 1536. Anne Boleyn’s fate has been sealed by the executioner. Jane Seymour must deliver King Henry a healthy heir. Thomas Cromwell continues his ruthless ascent from the gutters of Putney to the highest rank beside his master. But with the threat of invasion and the King’s legacy tottering, Cromwell is vulnerable and his enemies are poised to strike. The further you climb, the harder you fall.

Ben Miles will reprise his role as Thomas Cromwell and will be joined by Nathaniel Parker who resumes his Olivier Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated role of Henry VIII.

The world premiere will begin performances 23 September 2021, with an opening night on 6 October and will run for a strictly limited run until 28 November 2021.

The previous instalments Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies were Olivier and Tony Award-winning productions, that sold out to huge acclaim.
