It all starts in the afterlife, in a bizarre waiting room of sorts. One by one, the wives of Henry VIII arrive, much to the shock and dismay of each previous wife. What ensues is a heated frenzy of an ex-wives club where the women swap stories, toss Anne Boleyn’s head around, pick on the “ugly German” one, and, most importantly, fight for the right to be acknowledged as Henry’s true bride and eternal partner.
But when Henry arrives…everything changes.

“We’ve all heard about Henry VIII and his six wives. But you’ve never heard the story told like it is in Ryan Gladstone’s Til Death: The Six Wives of Henry VIII. Equal parts comedy, tragedy and reality TV show, the one-woman play brings wicked humour and a humanizing touch to the women’s story. Finally, a note on Tara Travis: her talent cannot be overstated. Her performance is absolutely astonishing and is reason alone to see the show.” – thesoundandnoise.com, Edmonton
