The Abbey Ruins

By Beth Flintoff
Directed by Jonathan Humphreys

Hugh is an unknown monk living quietly at Reading Abbey until a chance encounter with King Henry VIII results in his unexpected promotion. Suddenly propelled into a world of intrigue, politics, and danger, Hugh must find the delicate balance between staying faithful to his beliefs and following the orders of an increasingly authoritarian King. As England breaks away from Europe, he has to make an impossible choice.

Reading Between the Lines brings to life the fateful, terrible last days of Reading Abbey.
