The RSC's productions of Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies will make a transfer to the West End. The Hilary Mantel adaptations will be transferring to the Aldwych Theatre in London from May 1, 2014 for an eighteen week run. This is fantastic news as the production in Stratford has been sold out a long time ago. So for those of you who haven't made their way to Stratford as yet here's another chance not to miss it until September 6, 2014.

The London productions will include many of the original company including Ben Miles as Cromwell, Lydia Leonard as Anne Boleyn, Nathaniel Parker as Henry VIII, Paul Jesson as Cardinal Wolsey and Lucy Briers as Katherine of Aragon.

 

Talking about the transfer Gregory Doran, RSC Artistic Director and Catherine Mallyon, RSC Executive Director said,

'From first reading Hilary's incredible books we knew they would make gripping theatrical events, and that great creative skill and imagination would be required to make that possible. It is with huge pleasure we have seen them crafted by Mike Poulton and Hilary herself and directed by Jeremy Herrin to become the current 'must see' shows of our winter season.

'One of our most important roles is to nurture epic and ambitious work, to support it with superlative acting, attention to detail and excellent stagecraft. We are very proud of them and we hope both productions will have a very happy life in the West End.'
