The Mirror and the Light Playtext PB
Now playing in the Gielgud Theatre London until 23 Jan 2022.
England, May 1536. Anne Boleyn's fate has been sealed by a hired French executioner. It now befalls Jane Seymour to deliver King Henry VIII the healthy heir he craves. Thomas Cromwell, the blacksmith's son from the gutters of Putney, has knocked down everyone in his path: established at the right hand of the king, he is now the second most powerful man in England. But what will you do, an astute witness asks, when the king turns on you, as sooner or later he turns on everyone close to him?
This volume contains the text of the play and an introduction by Hilary Mantel on each of the principal characters and their fates, offering a unique new insight into her trilogy and an invaluable resource to any theatre companies wishing to stage the play.
