Wanted – Henry VIII’s Wives

by Secret London Runs26 April 2017

Feeling Queenly? Secret Runs is hosting “Wives’ Tales” on May 7th; a unique running event where Henry VIII’s brides get to tell their side of history.

Secret London Runs is a running tour and events company regularly featured in TimeOut, and is ranked 8 out of 180 outdoor activities onĀ TripAdvisor and the number 1 running tour company in London.

Our events often feature characters (real and fictional) that interact with runners as they solve murder mysteries, secret challenges and learn about London’s history, and our actors really make these events stand out!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR THREE OF HENRY VIII’s WIVES AS DETAILED BELOW

We are looking for an actress to deliver a 2-3 minute short monologue as Jane Seymour, Henry VIII’s third–and favorite, nonetheless!–wife, to various runners as they complete the tour route (and meet the other wives!) You will be stationed at St. Thomas’ Hospital in front of the Edward VI statue; as the groups of runners come by you will deliver the monologue and interact with them briefly before they move on. The event is May 7th from 1-3pm. This is an amateur position and there will be no monetary compensation.

We will provide the monologue as well as various facts/anecdotes if you’re keen on improvisation. We look forward to meeting our next Queen Jane Seymour!

We are looking for an actress to deliver a 2-3 minute short monologue as Anne of Cleves, the underestimated (though perhaps the luckiest) fourth wife of Henry VIII, to various runners as they complete the tour route (and meet the other wives!) You will be stationed at Westminster Abbey; as the groups of runners come by you will deliver the monologue and interact with them briefly before they move on. The event is May 7th from 1-3pm. This is an amateur position and there will be no monetary compensation.

We will provide the monologue as well as various facts/anecdotes if you’re keen on improvisation. We look forward to meeting our next Anne of Cleves!

We are looking for an actress to deliver a 2-3 minute short monologue as Catherine Howard, Henry VIII’s young queen whom he called his ‘rose without a thorn’, to various runners as they complete the tour route (and meet the other wives!) You will be stationed in a location; as the groups of runners come by you will deliver the monologue and interact with them briefly before they move on. The event is May 7th from 1-3pm. This is an amateur position and there will be no monetary compensation.

We will provide the monologue as well as various facts/anecdotes if you’re keen on improvisation. We look forward to meeting our next Catherine Howard!
