Man For All Seasons, A. by. Robert Bolt. Sir, SAINT Thomas More is perhaps the most exemplary example a simple Christian man (non clergy) who lived his life as Jesus would have. My only complaint about his play is that it does not nearly reveal the full worth of this most remarkable man. This is not a senseless nor overblown affectation of idolatry, but a sober assessment of the raw truth and beauty of Saint More's wondrous life.
A Man for All Seasons is a play by Robert Bolt based on the life of Sir Thomas More. An early form of the play had been written for BBC Radio in 1954, and a one-hour live television version starring Bernard Hepton was produced in 1957 by the BBC, but after Bolt's success with The Flowering Cherry, he reworked it for the stage. It was first performed in London opening at the Globe Theatre (now Gielgud Theatre) on 1 July 1960.
A Man for All Seasons dramatises the conflict between King Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More. In 1966 it was made into an Academy Award-winning film by Fred Zinneman starring Paul Scofield. It depicts the confrontation between church and state, theology and politics, absolute power and individual freedom. A Man for All Seasons is a stark play, sparse in its narrative, sinewy in its writing, which confirms Mr Bolt as a genuine and solid playwright, a force in our awakening theatre.

Robert Bolt Robert Bolt's classic play about Thomas More, the Catholic saint beheaded by Henry VIII at the birth of the Church of England, is now in trade paperback. I am currently reading A Man For All Seasons as a school project, and I am enjoying it more than any other book that I have read in school. This play is an incredible work of art that thoroughly and accurately depicts the personality and moral values of Saint Thomas More, the man who was "the King's good servant, but God's first".
