by Robert Bolt

performed by BTG November 2000

A Play

Sir Thomas More, chancellor of England, has an unquestioning faith. A devout Catholic, More refuses to support King Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon so he can marry his mistress, Anne. When the petulant king breaks with Rome and the Pope, More resigns his chancellorship in protest. The king is so unsure in his new position as head of the Church of England that More's continued refusal to acknowledge it terrifies him, and More ends up imprisoned in the Tower of London for his stubborn convictions.
