“Divorced, beheaded, died ..”

Calling all Ladies. There’s still time to be part of Banbury Cross Players’ Festival Production – the funny, moving and provocative “The Regina Monologues” by Rebecca Russell and Jenny Wafer. The play will be performed at The Lighthorne Drama Festival on 10 June 2016 and at the ODN Festival in Abingdon, the same week.

Six modern women with one thing in common. Each tells their story and shares their experiences of miscarriage, love affairs and betrayal with humour, pathos and a great deal of wine, showing that the plight of their sixteenth century sisters – also married to a Henry – is still relevant five hundred years on.

Divorced, beheaded, died

Roles available as follows:

  • Cathy (of Aragon) – the discarded wife (40s to 50s)
  • Annie (Boleyn) – the faded beauty, worn out by partying (30s to 40s)
  • Jane (Seymour) – pale and vulnerable, with an air of simplistic naivety (20s to 30s)
  • Anne (of Cleves) – striking and intelligent, looks older than her years, wears a wig (30s to 50s)
  • Katie (Howard) – sometimes vulnerable and childlike; sometimes the assured teenager (late teens/early 20s)
  • Catherine (Parr) – the composed widow, determined and single-minded (30s to 40s)

The main rehearsal period will start from 25 April and will be 1/2 rehearsals per week. There are no set nights currently and, due to the nature of the play (short monologues) there is flexibility in the rehearsal schedule.

If you are interested in being involved, or would like to have a look at the script, or talk to the Director about the production, please email: .

You do not have to be a BCP member to audition but will be required to join should you be cast.
