A severed head, a love story, a chest full of secrets, and a conspiracy theory befitting the most infamous of Henry VIII's wives all figure prominently in Anne Boleyn, a century-hopping, witty look at the great English heroine. Brenton's gripping and fast-paced play, which had its premiere at Shakespeare's Globe, examines the impact Anne Boleyn may have had on the Protestant Reformation in England. Resisting Henry's desire for a divorce, Anne decides that a very public religious fervor is just the way to force her husband to stay with her. But his lust for one of her ladies-in-waiting and Anne's inability to provide him an heir converge to send Anne to the chopping block. Often witty and sometimes vulgar, this bold drama, at Marin Theatre Company, is a delight.
