(WESTFIELD, NJ) -- The second production of the 2022-23 season for Westfield Community Players is A Man for All Seasons.  This tragic historical drama offers a brilliant portrait of Sir Thomas More in his last years as Lord Chancellor of England during the reign of Henry VIII. The production closes this weekend with performances on January 27 & 28 at 8:00pm; January 29 at 2:00pm.

When Henry fails to obtain papal approval for a divorce from Catherine of Aragon to marry Anne Boleyn, he mandates his subjects to sign an “Act of Supremacy” making him both spiritual and temporal leader of England. Sir Thomas cannot in good conscience comply. Cromwell, Cardinal Wolsey, his family, and the King himself are all unable to convince More otherwise, as he maintains his integrity and belief in silence. Ultimately accused of high treason, this very silence leads the man to his execution, and later his canonization in 1935.

Tickets are available for purchase online or through the Box Office at 908.232.1221.

A Man for All Seasons is being directed by Jeanne Johnston , produced by Kay Macrae and stage managed by Peter Curley.
