6DQ2300Summary

Divorced. Beheaded. Died. Divorced. Beheaded. Survived. Six Dead Queens and an Inflatable Henry!, is the tale of three Catherines, two Annes and one Janeā€”the ill-fated wives of Henry VIII.

This royal gaggle is trapped in eternity and forced to share not only one husband but one bed upon which they sing, dance and fight to assert themselves as the one true queen. Historical archetypes fall, common cause rises, and the women behind the titles unleash a raucous royal coup against their fat, flaccid, inflatable spouse.
