Anne of the Thousand Days
by Maxwell Anderson
Maxwell Anderson’s riveting play rips the cover off an historic scandal. Anne of the Thousand Days chronicles King Henry VIII’s pursuit of the bewitching young Anne Boleyn. The affair betrays his Queen and rends his country.
Written in 1948, the play’s themes of adultery and illegitimacy are no longer shocking. The storytelling is lyrical, frank, and boldly fascinated with Anne’s character and point of view.
