Where last time it landed as a surprise Fringe hit for a few dates over Christmas, for its six week run this year Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’ show is renewed and riding high on a raft of spectacular reviews and a huge word of mouth wave. Six isn’t a full-blown narrative musical, coming as it does in a simple, 75 minute-long fringe format. But it’s the big, two fingers up fun of it all that’s bound to delight almost anyone who comes to see it. The six of the title are the six wives of Henry VIII divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. Here they are, dressed in Gabriella Slade’s sci-fi pop costumes which echo the corsets and ruffs of the Tudor period, and ready to compete for the crown of who had it worst when married to his majesty. Each gets the space of a song to make their case. There’s Anna of Cleves, brought over from Germany to marry the king after the death of Jane Seymour, Anne Boleyn who was the first of Henry’s wives to lose her head, Catherine of Aragon his first wife who refused to accept Henry’s annulment of their marriage, Katherine Howard who was beheaded because of her unchaste life and Catherine Parr, who outlived the king. If you didn’t know much about their lives before you watch, you’ll know about them after you leave Six, but not in a worthy, ramming facts down your throat kind of way. It’s Marlow and Moss’ clever, funny and frank lyrics which manage to squeeze their stories into punchy, upbeat pop-tunes and pepper them with modern allusions and a lot of hashtags they’re sorrynotsorry. And the smartness of Six is that it’s not trying to be anything other than it is:

Only one of those is made up. I’m not against internet dating — it’s the sexual revolution of our time. It’s a force for good.
