why watch the mirror and the light

The higher you climb, the harder you fall. This is 16th-century England. Anne Boleyn's fate has been sealed by the executioner, and Jane Seymour has to give birth to a healthy heir for King Henry. All this while Tomas Cromwell rises up the ranks ruthlessly from the gutters of Putney to be beside his master. But Cromwell is vulnerable and the enemies lurk in the shadows.

The last installment in Dame Hilary Mantel's award-winning Wolf Hall trilogy, The Mirror and The Light, is a must-watch. Mantel is the first woman to win the Man Booker Award twice and this installment for West End has been beautifully adapted for the stage by Mantel herself, and by Ben Miles who returns to play his dazzling role as Thomas Cromwell himself.
