By Robert Bolt.
Sir Thomas Moore has managed to resist Henry VIII's pressure on him to sanction the forthcoming wedding to Anne Boleyn.
All of Cromwell's plots to entrap Thomas fail as the wily Chancellor counters with his knowledge of the law and his right to silence.
But can treachery from an unsuspected source spell doom for the brilliant statesman?
