A Man for All Seasons is based on the true story of Sir Thomas More, the 16th-century Chancellor of England, who refuses to endorse or denounce the king’s wish to divorce his aging wife so that he can marry his mistress and produce a male heir to the throne. King Henry VIII’s request is supported by all of his religious advisors except the highly devout Sir Thomas More.

When Cardinal Wolsey, Chancellor of England, names More as his successor, it becomes important for Henry to get More’s support, but More cannot be swayed. Henry demands the clergy to renounce the Pope and to name him Head of the Church of England. Oliver Cromwell frames More, forcing him to resign as Chancellor.

Eventually, More is brought to trial, found guilty of treason, and beheaded. Bolt’s play was successful in England, won the Tony Award for Best Play when it premiered on Broadway, and was adapted for the screen, winning the 1966 Oscar for Best Picture.
