WOLF HALL Author Hilary Mantel Wants to Write a Play

According to The New York Times, WOLF HALL and BRING UP THE BODIES novelist Hilary Mantel revealed at the 92nd Street Y last night, March 8, that she wants to try her hand at playwriting.

WOLF HALL: Parts 1 & 2, adapted for the stage by Mike Poulton, will open at Broadway's Winter Garden Theater next month.

Mantel told the audience: "I would like to write a play. The process of working with this team has changed my vision of what I might want to do in the future."

Aside from her Thomas Cromwell trilogy -- for which she is currently penning the third and final installment, THE MIRROR AND THE LIGHT -- Mantel is reportedly working on "several more novels, a nonfiction book, and a work of historical fiction about Africa."

No word yet on when she will begin her next writing project or what it will be about, but BWW will keep you updated as we learn more!

Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will begin previews on Friday, March 20, 2015, at the Winter Garden Theatre, with an opening day set for Thursday, April 9, 2015.

Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 is based on the best selling novels by Dame Hilary Mantel (Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies) about the deceit, betrayal, and intrigue of the court of Henry VIII, and adapted for the stage by Mike Poulton. This special event invites theatergoers to be part of a unique theatrical experience, similar to the Royal Shakespeare Company's award winning production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.

Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 features a company of more than twenty actors, headed by Ben Miles as Thomas Cromwell,Lydia Leonard as Anne Boleyn, and Nathaniel Parker as King Henry VIII, all under the direction of Olivier Award nominee Jeremy Herrin, who makes his New York City directing début. The Royal Shakespeare Company is appearing with the permission of Actors' Equity Association.

The production features scenic and costume design by Christopher Oram, lighting design by Paule Constable (Part 1) and David Plater (Part 2), sound design by Nick Powell, music by Stephen Warbeck, and movement by Siân Williams.
