More About This Title Humble Tom's Big Trip


This hilarious play explores the world of King Henry VIII prior to his meeting with the King of France at the Field of Cloth of Gold. Two narrators observe and comment on scenes with Henry and his courtiers as well as commoners such as Humble Tom, the shepherd boy who yearns to travel with the King to France. Wonderfully entertaining, this farcical play raises many issues concerning life in Tudor England, and in particular the roles of men and women, making it perfect for classes exploring historical and literacy topics.
