A Man for All Seasons

Large Mixed Cast

Robert Bolt Price: $14.99

Garlands of awards and critical praise greeted this play in New York and London

Paul Scofield was pronounced brilliant for his portrayal of Sir Thomas More in his last years as Lord Chancellor of England during the reign of Henry VIII

When Henry fails to obtain from the Pope a divorce from Catherine of Aragon so he can marry Ann Boleyn, he rebels by requiring his subjects to sign an Act of Supremacy making him both spiritual and temporal leader of England. More can not in conscience comply

Neither Thomas Cromwell, Cardinal Wolsey nor the King himself can get a commitment from him. He resists anything heroic, wanting only to maintain his integrity and belief in silence. But this is treason, and his very silence leads him to his death

"A Man for All Seasons is the ageless and inspiring echo of the small voice that calls to us: "To thine own self be true.'... A masterpiece" ~ N.Y. Journal American

"Extraordinarily lucid play.... Make[s] the human mind shine. The glare is dazzling, the experience exhilarating" ~ N.Y. Herald Tribune
