Minster of St Mary the Virgin Church, Reading
By Beth Flintoff
The Civil war is over, and after a long forty years, Reading Abbey has finally been completed. It should be a weekend filled with joy, but King Henry's political and romantic relationships are at crisis point. Meanwhile, in the shadows of the Abbey, a would-be poet Bart and his friend Amaria find it is a weekend that will change their lives forever.
Henry II is the final chapter of the multi-award winning Conquerors trilogy.
A wildly entertaining and enjoyable production…. It will make you proud of our town.’
