The adaptations of Wolf Hall along with Bring Up the Bodies, having enjoyed sell out runs in Stratford–upon-Avon, now transfer to the Aldwych Theatre in London's West End from for a strictly limited season.

England in 1527. Henry VIII has been King for almost 20 years and is desperate for a male heir. Intent on divorce he demands that Cardinal Wolsey persuade the Pope to grant him an annulment. With every month that passes without progress the King's anger grows. Into this volatile court enters the commoner Thomas Cromwell.

A one-time mercenary, master-politician, lawyer and doting father, he sets out to grant the King his desire whilst methodically and ruthlessly pursuing his own reforming agenda.
