The Six Wives of Henry VIIILive At Bristol Old Vic
Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There’s no escaping that. Stu Mcloughlin doesn’t really look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go.
After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard and Stu are at their wits’ end. Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything...
But can two of the South West’s favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other?
Living Spit’s original hit show plays Bristol for one last time after a smash-hit, Off-West End Award nominated London run just before Coronavirus shut everything down. With live original music, embroidery, barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in cross-dressing Tudor history that you’ll never forget. You may just laugh your head off.

Think of Six, turn it upside down, add a couple of hysterical jokes, and you’ll have The Six Wives of Henry VIII. The result is glorious.
