A Man for All Seasons Power

By Robert Bolt

Power

Here's some advice: if you're going to get on someone's bad side, try your best not to let that person be a king. Just ask A Man for All Seasons Thomas More and his severed head if you don't believe us. See, this guy was a real bigwig back in 16th-century England, but he found himself on the wrong side of the law after mighty King Henry VIII announced his desire to sever England from its relationship with the Catholic Church. More wasn't down with that, however. As we watch him struggle between his duty as a loyal royal subject and his inner beliefs as a strict Catholic, we learn why it might not be a good idea to pick a fight with one of the most powerful dudes in the world.
