Divorced, Beheaded, Died: An Audience with King Henry VIII, Brixham Theatre, Brixham, Devon

About Us

The year is 1544 and King Henry, the Eighth of that name, is engaged upon Royal Progress about his Realm; and has halted here to afford his Loyal Subjects the opportunity to have 'audience' with their Sovereign Lord and King.

The King, recently married to his new, and sixth, wife, Queen Catherine Parr, is in poor health; his leg continues to cause him considerable pain and he is often in a poor humour!

In the course of the 'audience', His Majesty will recount the events of his  long reign; telling of his wives and his children, and His Majesty will invite his Loyal Subjects to Petition him or question him on ANY related subject : there may be some surprising answers - a lively Q&A is assured!

"....what a superb show! It was hard to believe we were not in the presence of the formidable monarch himself .... a pitch-perfect performance .... the audience were enthralled .... by this talented and impressive actor.... do not miss a chance to see such a first-class performance"
Ann Ellison, BEM, Artistic Director, Next Stage Theatre Company and The Mission Theatre, Bath.

“John has been a regular visitor .... (to) Windsor Castle for many years....  John’s attention to detail is amazing.... his delivery .... the amazing costume .... the feedback is overwhelmingly excellent. We would highly recommend John to any organisation looking for an authentic and immersive experience.
Gordon Ferguson, Learning Manager, Windsor Castle

"Jack Abbot looks the picture of Henry VIII .... an imposing figure ....great presence .... poignant ....  Abbot is a powerhouse and embodies Henry VIII perfectly .... he is fun to watch"  
Simon Topping - Brighton Festival Fringe 2021
