England, May 1536

Anne Boleyn's fate has been sealed by a hired French executioner

It now befalls Jane Seymour to deliver King Henry VIII the healthy heir he craves

Thomas Cromwell, the blacksmith's son from the gutters of Putney, has knocked down everyone in his path

Established at the right hand of the king, he is now the second most powerful man in England

But what will you do, an astute witness asks, when the king turns on you, as sooner or later he turns on everyone close to him?

Hilary Mantel's twice Booker Prize-winning trilogy is the outstanding literary achievement of recent times

Following Olivier and Tony Award-winning productions of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, hailed as a landmark and must-see theatrical event on both sides of the Atlantic, Mantel and Ben Miles have adapted the trilogy's exhilarating conclusion, The Mirror and the Light, for the stage

This volume contains the text of the play and an introduction by Hilary Mantel on each of the principal characters and their fates, offering a unique new insight into her trilogy and an invaluable resource to any theatre companies wishing to stage the play
