“A Man for All Season” in its early form had been written for BBC Radio in the year 1954, and its one hour live television version was made in the year 1957. Finally, Bolt worked on it and wrote it for the stage.
The story revolves around the true story related to life of Sir Thomas More who was the Chancellor of England in the 16th century. Thomas More had refused to endorse the wish of King Henry VIII who wanted to divorce his ageing wife Catherine of Aragon only because she had been unable to give him a son. King Henry VIII wanted to marry Anne Boleyn, who was the sister of his former mistress.
Sir Thomas More has been presented as a man of principle. He is envied by his rivals like Thomas Cromwell. His family and the common people in the country love him.
