Living Spit present ‘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 & 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’ is an undisputed hit and with live original music, embroidary, Barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in Tudor history you’ll never forget.
