This was Play of the Week, in the Hammersmith, Fulham Gazette, when it was first seen in 1994. A great feat considering how much theatre is on in London. This is a Tudor tale of the intrigue that surrounds the court at the death of Henry VIII. If you love your sixteenth century royals then this winding play set in an a perpetual circle of hell will be just the thing. The Blessed was also recommissioned by the owners of Sudely Castle, where Catherine Parr, the surviving wife of Henry is buried.
