There are men talking about me now
Talking about you but mainly about me

A young woman on trial. Locked within her rooms, whilst men investigate their conduct, the young queen and her ladies await the interrogations they know will come.

Katheryn Howard is a poignant examination of power, truth and blame set against the closeted, opposing confines of the Tudor court.

An all-female cast present an intense and haunting portrayal of the final days of seventeen year old Queen Katheryn, the fifth wife of King Henry VIII.

Katheryn Howard originated from a short monologue that first appeared at Glass Splinters: a new writing night at The Pleasance Theatre, dedicated to pieces featuring or inspired by women from history. This is Goosebite Theatre’s debut production.

Catherine Hiscock studied Drama, Applied Theatre and Education at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. She has worked throughout London and internationally with communities using theatre and the arts to explore identity and question accepted narratives. With a tense, abstract and often poetic style, her writing has been described as ‘compelling, utterly absorbing and provocative drama.’

Casting for Katheryn Howard will be announced shortly.
