NEW BEDFORD, MA – YTI veteran director, Bob Gillet of Fall River MA, has cast fourteen Southcoast area actors to take the stage in the gripping drama "A Man For All Seasons" by Robert Bolt, the final major attraction of Your Theatre, Inc.'s 72nd season.
Gripping Historical Drama
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.
The cast includes Mark P. Fuller, Bruce Lackey, Frank Mitchell, Leonid Tatara, Ray Veary, Ian Vincent of New Bedford, Cheryl Day, John Softcheck of Fairhaven, Lauren Costa of Dartmouth, Kyle Barrett of Middletown RI, Alberto Rizzotti of Berkley, Stephen Norton of N. Providence, Natalie Cabral of Dighton, and Jack Boesen of Marion.
The production is stage managed by Maria G. Dawson of West Warwick, RI, Set Design by Bob Gillet, Costume design by Mark P. Fuller, Lighting design by Lawrence R. Houbre, Jr., both of New Bedford with sound design by William Smith of Dartmouth.
