With music by Grammy-nominated songwriter Jamie Floyd and a book by writer Mêlisa Annis, The King’s Wife is a new musical about Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn – the first two wives of Henry VIII – and a friendship that might have been. History paints these women as enemies engaged in a bitter struggle for The King’s attention, and ultimately, their own survival. The King’s Wife ingeniously reimagines Catherine and Anne’s story, based on historical clues: they’re like-minded good friends – plotting and executing ideas for the future before they are stripped of choice, options, and each other, in a devastating game of politics and power. An untraditional period piece with a progressive vibe, The King’s Wife is a moving story about a female friendship formed in a dark world where great women are unable to rise.
