A young woman on trial.

Locked within her rooms, whilst men investigate their conduct, the young queen and her ladies await the interrogations they know will come.

An all-female cast retells the story of seventeen year old Katheryn Howard, fifth wife of King Henry VIII, in this poignant examination of power, truth and blame.

Set against the shallow and oppressive world of the Tudor court and influenced by classical Greek drama, KATHERYN HOWARD is a new play that is that is both contemporary and hauntingly relevant.

There are men talking about me now
Talking about you but mainly about me”

Written by Catherine Hiscock, KATHERYN HOWARD was expanded from a short monologue that first appeared at Glass Splinters: a new writing night at The Pleasance Theatre, dedicated to ‘untold stories’ of women from history. Developed into a full length production, the play enjoyed sell out shows at The Brockley Jack Theatre. The show is now under the direction of Alex Pearson with movement direction by Emmanuela Lia.
