JOHN RAMM BRINGS UP THE BODIES AND LANDS WOLF HALL IN LONDON
Last week, we welcomed the news that the RSC’s fantastic production of Wolf Hall/ Bring Up the Bodies is set for transfer from the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, where it has been playing since the beginning of January, to the Aldwych in the heart of London’s West End. Hilary Mantel’s prize winning novels – impressive reimaginings of Thomas Cromwell’s rise to power in the court of Henry VIII – have been adapted for the stage by Mike Poulton and directed by Jeremy Herrin. The brilliant John Ramm will continue to appear as Thomas More/ Harry Norris in London, alongside an exciting cast which includes Ben Miles as Thomas Cromwell and Nathaniel Parker as King Henry VIII. We’re positive that this dramatisation is set for a similarly fantastic run here in the capital.
“Among a superb cast, John Ramm excels as the chirpily pedantic Thomas More..” Dominic Maxwell, TheTimes, Wolf Hall ***** Bring Up the Bodies ****
“John Ramm as first Thomas More and later Henry’s stool-attendant are all very good.” Michael Billington, The Guardian ****
Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies are currently playing at the Swan Theatre, Straford-upon-Avon until 29 March and will play at The Aldwych Theatre from 1 May until 6 September.
