A tale of morality and the corrupting nature of power.
Henry VIII wants a new wife and he'll stop at nothing until he gets her. A Man for All Seasons charts the true historical story of Thomas More as he attempts to uphold the law and prevent Henry VIII from divorcing his first wife and marrying again. Robert Bolt's play spans several years and discusses truth, morality and the deadly lure of power. Ever current in our current political climate, A Man for All Seasons aims to find out what happens when the system goes wrong and when those in power are only in it for themselves.
