The Tudor Repertory


Henry the Eighth
Performances June 7, 13 & 16, 2019
Directed by Artistic Director Jeff Watkins

Shakespeare’s History saga continues. Here we get to know Henry VIII as a virile young man bouncing between his loyal wife Catherine of Aragon and other women in his court. Full of grand pageantry, watch the coronation of Anne Boleyn and the christening of Elizabeth and listen to the famous speeches the noble Duke of Buckingham, the grotesque Cardinal Wolsey and Queen Catherine give as they all fall from grace.

Performances June 6, 9 & 15, 2019
Directed by Artistic Director Jeff Watkins

Intimate details come to light as Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII separately relive the memories of the one thousand days of their tempestuous relationship. Watch as their tragic love story slowly unfolds and abruptly comes to an end. Full of adultery, power and deception, Anne of The Thousand Days explores the loss of innocence in so many ways.



A Man For All Seasons
By Robert Bolt
Produced by special arrangement with Robert A. Freedman Dramatic Agency, Inc.
Performances June 8 & 14, 2019
Directed by J. Tony Brown

Meet King Henry VIII who, upon learning that the Pope will not grant him a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, decides to break from the Catholic Church. Enter Lord Chancellor Sir Thomas More, a long-time friend of the King’s and a staunch Catholic. After Henry declares that he will break from the Catholic Church and passes a bill requiring his subjects to agree to Henry’s supremacy over all, Thomas resigns his Chancellorship and refuses to take the oath. This brilliant and gripping story of one man’s courage and convictions will move all who experience it.

What does rating this mean?

These are plays you may have read in high school or college. The plot is fairly uncomplicated, though some of the themes may be dense or dark. These plays may include supernatural elements, straight-forward politics, historical content or religious content. In these plays, there may also be bawdy language and certain adult situations. If we feel a show contains a plethora of Graphic Elizabethan Poetry (or is very bloody/violent/triggering) we will put that disclaimer in the blurb about the show.

Note for all plays: The performers of The Atlanta Shakespeare Company are specially trained to make Shakespeare’s text and intention clear, no matter the plot or the subject matter. They know precisely how to get to the emotional core of each line, each moment, each scene. We promise you will understand everything! Leave the heavy lifting to us!
