Man For All Seasons 120 - Richmond 05
Robert Bolt’s award winning play follows two of the most charismatic figures from British history – King Henry VIII and his friend and right-hand man Sir Thomas More.

Martin Shaw, best known for his portrayal of Judge John Deed in the hugely popular BBC series, stars as Sir Thomas More. More’s crucible of moral standards leads to a choice between his own integrity and death. For this lawyer, writer, scholar and churchman there is no choice.

A Man For All Seasons – adapted from the 1966 film, which scooped 6 Oscars and 7 British Academy awards – is destined to be one of the dramatic highlights of the autumn season.
