UNIQUELY RE-TELLS THE

STORY AND FRIENDSHIP OF

THE FIRST 2 WIVES OF

KING HENRY VIII OF ENGLAND

The King’s Wife uniquely re-tells the relationship between Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn, the first two wives of King Henry VIII of England. While historical accounts paint these women as bitter enemies, The King’s Wife (using historic clues) flips the script to tell their tale differently. The story begins with them as like-minded good friends - plotting and executing ideas for the people and the future before they are stripped of choice, options and each other in a devastating game of politics and power. It’s an untraditional period piece with a dark, progressive vibe, and a moving, hopeful story about female friendship and the detriment to the world when great women aren’t allowed to rise.

The King’s Wife was a part of New Songs Now at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, and will have a reading at Playwrights Horizons in the spring of 2021.

AN AFROFUTURIST

MUSICAL

Metropolis is an epic tale that follows the Harmonizer-android-unit turned space-time-continuum anarchist Fari as she is wrenched across space and time. With the Apocalypse hot on her heels in the past and the future, Fari keeps finding herself at the center of world-defining moments. But will she be able to withstand the upheaval? Or will she crack under the pressure?

Metropolis was conceived and partially developed through Musical Theatre Factory’s Inaugural Makers Cohort, received a residency with Ancram Opera House, a concert presentation at Joe’s Pub, and has also been developed through a residency with Broad Views on Broadway, Western Carolina University, New Light Theater, and is also a finalist for the Sundance Theatre Lab Program.
