Henry VIII Assembly
Narrator: One year later.....
Jane: Look at your sweet baby son.
Henry: (cooing) Ah yes, perfect – so good looking - just like his daddy!
Courtier (stage whisper) You could have fooled me. Fat and forty – that’s you, mate. An ‘orrible old man. Lucky his wife adores him. They do say love is blind, don’t they?
Narrator: Sadly, Jane died soon after the birth of her son, Edward. Henry was heartbroken... (Henry wailing)....but not for long.
Henry: (pacing up and down) Oh woe is me. What will I do without Jane by my side. (Stops mid-pace). I know! I’ll......find another wife! (as an aside) I’m good at that! Get me a globe. Ah yes. Now I’ve tried Spain. What about ....Germany? I hear they have some very attractive frauleins there. (Courtier holds up poster of Britney Spears) Now, who is this? Britney Spears? Sings what? Oops I did it again? Oh dear, sounds a bit accident prone.
