The Betrayed Wife. The Scheming Wife. The Peacemaker. The Ugly German.
The Slutty One. The One in Love with Someone Else.
Six Queens. Six Love stories. Six Deaths. One Actress!
It all starts in the afterlife, in a bizarre waiting room of sorts. One by one, the wives of Henry VIII arrive, much to the shock and dismay of each previous wife. What culminates is a heated frenzy of an ex-wives club where these women swap stories, toss Anne Boleyn’s head around, pick on the ugly German one, and, most importantly, fight for the right to be acknowledged as Henry’s true bride and eternal partner.
But when Henry arrives…everything changes.
Playwright/Director Ryan Gladstone has given Tara Travis many unique challenges in the last 5 years: Playing over 50 characters in Mini Masterpieces [TYA tours ongoing with Monster Theatre For Kids], the entire company of actors and 15 other characters in The Shakespeare Show, a giant girl and everyone in her world in Lavinia: A Modern Fairy Tale of Gigantic Proportions, learning magic, escapes, and playing everyone in Harry Houdini’s life in Houdini’s Last Escape. Now, he has decided to give her the biggest challenge of her career with Til Death.
