A Man for All Seasons is the story of Sir Thomas More and his conflicts advising King Henry VIII as he tried to divorce Catherine of Aragon because she could not bear him a son. More’s conflicts with both king and church make him one of twentieth-century drama’s most admired characters. The play was first performed on Broadway in 1961.
