Henry VIII Characters

The Prologue/Epilogue comes forward to set the tone at the beginning of the play, explaining to which sectors of the audience the play may be expected to appeal, and asking the audience to lend its minds a little to imagining those aspects that the players cannot present. 

He returns at the end to admit that the play is unlikely to please anyone but women, since it presents them so well, but to suggest that the men will not dare refuse to clap when their lady friends are doing so.
