|Written by: Robert Bolt; Directed by: Arjun Sajnani; Cast: Ashok Mandanna, Veena Sajnani, Aporup Acharya, Vivek Madan, Ashish Sen, Bobbie Kalra & others; A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS dramatizes the conflict between Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More and is a confrontation between church and state, theology and politics, absolute power and individual freedom. The play opened in 1960 and went on to win New York`s Best Foreign Play award in 1962. It was later made into a motion picture which won 7 Academy Awards.|
The play presents the dilemma of a man of conscience who followed those dictates which have become a vital example to all mankind. Today, More is regarded as a hero of civil disobedience, a man who refused to obey the law with which he was in profound moral disagreement. For More, law was morality and morality was superior to law and the standard by which law must be judged.
