Henry VIII at The Globe

May 27, 2010

Henry VII is now showing at The Globe. Read a review here.

Bringing down the house

“Today Henry VIII is most famous as the play which burnt down the original Globe theatre on the afternoon of 29 June 1613. Wadding from a stage cannon ignited the thatched roof and the theatre burned to the ground ‘all in less than two hours, the people having enough to do to save themselves’. The story goes that the only casualty was a young boy’s trousers which caught fire, only for a friendly neighbour to extinguish the flames with his bottle of beer.
This production will be the play’s premiere at the rebuilt Globe on Bankside.” The Globe Website
