Kate Winslett shares her thoughts on RABBLE’s Henry I

May 31, 2023

Kate Winslet shares her thoughts about RABBLE’s upcoming production of HENRY I at Reading Abbey Ruins.

“Buried in my hometown of Reading, Henry I founded Reading Abbey in a desperate plea to God to forgive him for his sins. It’s phenomenal that RABBLE have gained the permission to stage their ambitious production, directly above his burial site, at Reading Abbey. Beyond here, they will head to Winchester Great Hall and then on to Covent Garden.

“As a proud Reading girl, I’m thrilled that theatre of such a high quality, that is both diverse and inclusive, is coming to my community-rich home town this summer.”

Kate Winslet CBE

Henry I runs from 13th June to 1st July at Reading Abbey Ruins, 12th-15th July at Winchester Great Hall and 20th-22nd July at St Pauls Church, Convent Garden, London. Tickets and information for all shows can be found here.
