VWTH Night at The Belfry Theatre

The last wife new (1)

Thursday, September 29“VWTH Night at The Belfry Theatre”. Join VWTH staff, board, supporters and donors at this social event – an evening performance of the play, “The Last Wife” by Kate Hennig at the Belfry Theatre with 6:30pm private VWTH reception and lecture-presentation followed by 7:30pm performance. This play premiered at the Stratford Festival (Ontario) in 2015 to great acclaim.

This contemporary re-imagining of the compelling relationship between Henry Viii and his last wife, Katherine Parr, is a witty and powerful examination of sexual politics and women’s rights. It’s a dangerous game of chess with Henry’s offspring, Mary, Elizabeth and Edward, as pawns.

Lecture-presentation is by Dr. Georgia Sitara who teaches “A History of Sexuality” and “Gender, Power and Difference” for the Departments of History and Gender Studies at UVic.

The Belfry Theater is located at 1291 Gladstone Ave, Victoria. Tickets are $36.96 including show, lecture and reception (light snacks provided; cash bar). Contact Myriah (250-592-2927 ext 213) at the VWTH office to purchase your ticket.

Please order ASAP. SPACE IS LIMITED!!
