Henry VIII 101

We're kicking off the January of Sh*tty Plays with (arguably) the worst of them all, Henry VIII. But fear not, because we've brought on intrepid director, playwright, and all-around good egg, Merlyn Q Sell, to hold our hands and tell us why this play might be worth re-examining. The Rhetorical Device of the Week is isocolon; Merlyn's Burbage Break examines the disparate ways characters refer to the King and the Queens in Henry VIII; we summarize the play for you in record time; we've got some super-exciting gossip and also a new matchup for our ongoing #DickBracket. What's that, Butts? Just a great episode. #YoureWelcome
