The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Two Actors. Too Many Characters.
One Big Ego.

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that.

Stu McLoughlin doesn't look like any of the wives, but he's going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard and Stu are at their wits end.

Then they hit on 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?

'The Six Wives of Henry VIII' was an undisputed hit at the Bristol Old Vic and with live original music, embroidery, Barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in Tudor history you'll never forget.

The best 100 minute comedy show outside of the Edinburgh Fringe”

Western Daily Press ★★★★★

“Brilliant comic acting...honest, unpretentious, beautifully scripted self-effacing comedy goes, this is premier league stuff” 

Venue ★★★★

“Hysterically funny...left me with aching cheeks from laughing so much” 


“Cleverly written, beautifully acted, and, dare I say it, educational. Howard and Stu are a double act to keep a beady eye on...their versatility and range is  outstanding”
