Mantel Adaptations – stage and TV

This is probably the most interesting article I’ve seen this week – a behind the scenes look at how Mantel’s Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies have been adapted for the RSC (and a wee reference to the TV adaptations to come – interesting that they will not be screened now until 2015.)

As someone who didn’t finish Wolf hall – I got so frustrated by the lack of dialogue tags and a few other issues – but really enjoyed Bring Up the Bodies, I would love to see both of these on stage – interesting premise that the target for Wolf Hall was to reduce it to 25,000 words!

Good too that Mantel was closely involved in the adaptation.
