A Drama by Robert Bolt

Garlands of awards and critical praise greeted this long-run success in both New York and London. The play is the story of Sir Thomas More in his last years as Lord Chancellor of England during the reign of Henry the Eighth. When Henry failed to obtain from the Pope a divorce from Catharine of Aragon to marry Ann Boleyn, he rebelled by requiring his subjects to sign an act making him both temporal and spiritual leader of England. More could not in conscience comply. He resisted anything heroic; he wanted only to maintain his integrity and belief in silence. This was treason, and his very silence led him to his death! A Man For All Seasons is the ageless and inspiring echo of the same voice that calls to us: “To thine own self be true”.
