Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded, Survived
Yes, all of the above. We want to kick off our Queendom with some fun, satirical, empowering music. The music of 'Six: The Musical'. A fantastic creation written in 2017 by two college students, Toby Marlowe and Lucy Moss. 'Six' reimagines the wives of Henry VIII competing in a song contest for the title of the king's most unfortunate wife. The two who were beheaded have an advantage. Catchy songs, funny dialogue with a message of Female Empowerment. One day we will be able to go to the theatre again. One day we will be able to wear our Dead Queens T-Shirts to the theatre.
Henry the VIII's Wives
Catherine of Aragon - Divorced
Anny Boleyn - Beheaded
