A controversial new play about Anne Boleyn’s incestuous relationship with her brother to the site of Anne’s trial, execution and final resting place is to begin at HM Tower of London next week.
Leading Suffolk theatre company Red Rose Chain bring Fallen in Love, written and directed by the company’s founder and director, Joanna Carrick, this story of love, betrayal, jealousy and treason has been hailed by author and historian Alison Weir, as “Theatre at its best… History transformed into drama with the highest integrity. If you only go to see one play this year make it this one”.
Jim Malarkey, Head of Visitor and Commercial Services at the Tower of London says: “Historic Royal Palaces are pleased to welcome Red Rose Chain Theatre Company to the Tower of London for their acclaimed production of ‘Fallen in Love’. The Tower is, of course, the place where Anne Boleyn spent her final days and her bones still rest at the Tower, buried in the Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula. Her love life was in part her downfall, presenting Henry VIII with a convenient and almost certainly contrived reason to persecute his Queen. Could there be a more appropriate setting for this wonderful play?”
The play begins this Friday at the Tower of London, rather aptly as that is where Anne Boleyn eventually met her death. Tickets start at £27, you can find out more at by clicking here.
