About the show
‘From Tudor queens to pop princesses, SIX sees the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their own personal tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.’
Two years ago the show premièred as a student production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, before transferring to the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York, following sold out runs in Chicago and Boston.
In London, SIX plays at the Arts Theatre and has recently extended its run in the capital until July 2020.
The show will open at the Sydney Opera House in January and is due to reopen in Chicago next summer. Productions are also being planned for China, Japan, South Korea and Canada.
