King Henry VIII’s dilemma played out in Letchworth

AN AMATEUR dramatic society will be in Tudor attire tomorrow (Thursday) as they perform a play centred on King Henry VIII.

The Settlement Players’ latest production, A Man for All Seasons by Robert Bolt, tells the tale of the 16th century king’s moral dilemma, after he wishes to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, and break with Roman Catholic religion.

But his chancellor Thomas More, the ‘Man for All Seasons’, is a man of principle who cannot so easily change his allegiances.

Following tomorrow night’s performance at The Settlement in Nevells Road, Letchworth GC at 7.45pm, two further shows will be held on Friday and Saturday.

Tickets, priced at �7, are available at David’s Bookshop in Eastcheap, by calling 01462 475900, or on the door.
