Six is a pop concert like no other, as the six wives of Henry VIII sing their way out of the history books and into the spotlight.

Join these Tudor Queens – turned Pop Princesses – for one night only, as they remix 500 years of historical heartbreak into 70 minutes of 21st century sass.

Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Catherine Parr have lived in the shadow of one man for far too long. But at this Tudor consort, it’s only girls allowed! New songs include Ex Wives, Haus of Holbein and Don’t Lose Ur Head.

Six is an acclaimed new British musical by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. The show started life with Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017, where it was nominated for the inaugural Musical Theatre Review Best Musical Award. The original production attracted the attention of producers Kenny Wax and Global Musicals, who are presenting this all-new production for the show’s professional premiere at the Arts Theatre.

The shows’ creators Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss met at University, where they spent three years making theatre together and neglecting their degrees. In January 2017, they made their first foray into writing as a duo with the musical, Six. Following the show’s success in Edinburgh, they are incredibly excited for its debut at the Arts Theatre. The team also make up two-thirds of the award-winning theatre company Hot Gay Time Machine, whose show, Hot Gay Time Machine, enjoyed considerable success at the fringe this year, and a sold out run at The Other Palace in November.

The professional production is directed by The Buskers Opera (Park Theatre) director Lotte Wakeham, with choreography by Cressida Carré.

If you thought this show was all about one man – you thought wrong!
