Details

Two actors. Too many characters. One big ego.

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that. Stu McLoughlin doesn't really look like any of the wives, but he's going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard (Bristol Old Vic) and Stu (Kneehigh) are at their wits end.

Then they hit upon 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?

With live original music, embroidery, barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in cross-dressing Tudor history that you'll never forget.
