Built by William I (William the Conqueror) in 1078, it played a distinct role in the English history, serving various roles as the Royal armoury, treasury, menagerie, home of the Royal Mint, public records office, and the home of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom. Despite all this, the historic castle symbolized oppression for many people, which are inflicted by the new aristocracy.
While it may be stripped off of its former glory, the Tower of London today is one of the most popular landmarks in the English capital, and Tower of London tours are definitely one fun adventure – a must visit if you want to experience the magnificence of the great castle. And, if you’ve made plans for a trip this month, you’ll surely catch the return of Anne Boleyn in a play entitled, “Fallen In Love.” This play chronicles and perhaps answers the controversial incestuous love affair of Anne and her brother, George.
With only a four-poster bed placed at the centre of the stage, the play perfectly captures the acts of Anne and her brother, George, as viewers speculate whether the infamous siblings did have an affair. Emma Connell plays as Anne, the strong and ambitious wife of Henry VIII, who wishes to bear a child that will be heir to the throne. George is played by Scott Ellis, Anne’s young and obedient brother, who is torn between his love for his sister and the dangerous game they are playing in the name of political power.
“Fallen In Love” has heavy-dialogue and is filled with history and intense rhetoric. What gives the whole drama an emotional punch is its setting, which somehow gives the audience the impression that the scene presented might have been what happened during the siblings’ private moments. Staged at the Tower of London and Gippeswyk Hall, Suffolk from May 7th to June 16th, it’s one of the many London attractions that you shouldn’t dare miss!
