King Henry 1 of England

Venue: Agency (Directions)

Wed 2 Nov to Sat 19 Nov


Reading Year of Culture 2016
Venue: St. James' Church, Forbury Gardens

When William the Conqueror announces his successor to the thrones of Normandy and England, his youngest son Henry gets nothing. With no-one but a loyal priest and clever sister to back him, he is caught like a pawn between two older brothers in their fight for power. But Henry is bright and determined, and fate seems to be on his side. As power surges into his hands, love beckons and the world falls at his feet, can he keep a firm grip on his own integrity?  
Much-loved theatre company Reading Between the Lines brings you a modern history play about the medieval King who founded Reading Abbey, performed on the very ground under which Henry’s bones are believed to lie.
