Six is quite a show. It started out as a Cambridge Uni piece that went to the 2017 Edinburgh Festival and grew from there into a worldwide phenomenon. It takes the lives of Henry VIII's six wives and turns them into a tightly plotted, short rock opera, done superbly here by a resolutely Australian cast.
