Play In A Day

King Henry believes in having a good time. It would be even better if he wasn't lost in his new maze at Hampton Court.

A Play in a Day® for up to 30 KS2 or KS3 pupils.

All he wants is a son and heir, but his Queens keep having baby girls - so they'll have to go. Time for cutbacks in the Royal household and the Executioner is on overtime already. When good Queen Bess inherits the throne there are sighs of relief all round but the axeman is soon in full swing again. Talk about a dysfunctional family! A glorious pageant of the Tudor age - from the Wars of the Roses to the Spanish Armada. And just what does the saucy Earl of Essex think he's playing at..? There are spies everywhere. Trust no one!

Working together as actors to create a fun, action-packed short performance, informing as much as it entertains, students will explore a wide range of topical issues.

Key themes:

-         the value of teamwork

-         self-expression

-         public speaking

-         confidence building

-         increased subject knowledge

Bring the exciting history of The Tudors to life in your school hall with a fantastic Play in a Day® experience!
