image-medium (55)This sounds really good! There’s going to be a TV version as well as the stage adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s novels with Mark Rylance  playing Thomas Cromwell in the BBC mini series version.
Tickets for the first theatrical adaptations of award winning novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies —  sold out in spring. The production was at at the Swan theatre in Stratford — but the show is expected to transfer to London in the new year. The novels were adapted by Mike Poulton who also adapted The Canterbury Tales and  Morte d’Arthur for the RSC.
The TV version filming begins in Bruges in the spring and will be shown in 2015. The king will be played by Nathaniel Parker, star of the BBC’s Inspector Lynley Mysteries who recently played Gordon Brown. Paul Jesson will play Cardinal Wolsey and Lucy Briers, daughter of the late Richard Briers, will be making her RSC debut as Catherine of Aragon. Lydia Leonard is playing Anne Boleyn.
