About A Man for All Seasons

Starring Martin Shaw (BBC 1's Judge John Deed)

This Tony award winning play, which inspired Peter Ackroyd's highly acclaimed biography of Sir Thomas More, and was immortalised by the 1966 film starring Paul Schofield - which won six Oscars, including Best Picture, as well as seven British Academy awards - is destined to be one of the highlights of the theatrical season.

When Henry VIII's first wife, Catherine of Aragon, is unable to produce an heir to the throne he uses this as a pretext for divorce - allowing him to marry his newest conquest, Anne Boleyn. Needing societal and religious approval, Henry seeks the support of Sir Thomas More; lawyer, writer, scholar and churchman, only for More's crucible of moral standards - against the personal pride and political salvation-seeking of Henry VIII - to lead to a choice between his own integrity and certain death.
