WAM Theatre’s fall Mainstage production of The Last Wife by Kate Hennig opened this past weekend to full houses and standing ovations at Shakespeare & Company’s Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre. The run continues weekends through November 5 with an exciting series of post-show conversations planned.
A contemporary reimagining of the compelling relationship between Katherine Parr, Henry VIII’s sixth and final wife, and the King, The Last Wife is a funny, powerful examination of patriarchy, sexual politics, and women’s rights.
The four free post-show conversations take place after their 2 pm matinees and focus on Patriarchy, Women in Power, and Sexual Politics. WAM Artistic Director and co-Founder Kristen van Ginhoven and Director of The Last Wife Kelly Galvin join us.
They will also share information with us about this weekend’s Berkshire Leadership Summit.
