Passions, politics, and the church
Apparently there is a new make of the play about the "bearded bedder and beheader" made for tv The Tudors. The new version limits the story to the "most sexually charged part of Henry's reign, when a still-vibrant pre-fat Hnery was just tiring of his first marriage and considering his second".
I have not seen it nor am I likely to. I don't watch too much tv.
But may be an excuse to post something here.
Maybe someone will like to discuss the real Shakepearean version, again.
