This tragic historical drama offers a brilliant portrait of Sir Thomas More in his last years as Lord Chancellor of England during the reign of Henry VIII. When Henry fails to obtain papal approval for a divorce from Catherine of Aragon to marry Anne Boleyn, he mandates his subjects to sign an 'Act of Supremacy' making him both spiritual and temporal leader of England. Sir Thomas cannot in good conscience comply. Cromwell, Cardinal Wolsey, his family, and the King himself are all unable to convince More otherwise, as he maintains his integrity and belief in silence. Ultimately accused of high treason, this very silence leads the man to his execution, and later his canonization in 1935.

Director's Message

A friend told me she thought “A Man for all Seasons” was both a theatrical experience and a history lesson. I like both good theater and English history so as director I had to find a way to present both.

Robert Bolt has given us his vision of the historical conflict created by Sir Thomas More's refusal to compromise between what he felt was morally right and what Henry VIII (the state) demanded from him. As you listen to the dialogue you may hear echos as today's politicians face their own difficult moral choices.

For the person not particularly interested in history, this theatrical experience might seem a little dry, so it is our job--myself as director and this wonderfully talented cast—to provide our vision of characters that reflect the life and humanity of the characters involved and the intentions of the writer.

I hope you feel we have succeeded.

My grateful thanks to all the actors who have put so much work into this show and to the technical staff that created the light, sound, and the visual aspects for you to enjoy.

- Bob Gillet, Director
