Sir Thomas More, nobleman, lawyer, and humanist, is a long-time friend and favorite of King Henry VIII. Henry appoints him Lord Chancellor in 1529. When the Pope refuses to grant Henry a divorce from his Queen, Catherine of Aragon, so that he can marry Anne Boleyn, Henry breaks with Rome and declares himself head of the Church of England. More, a staunch and faithful Catholic, resigns as Chancellor. In 1534 Parliament passes a bill requiring all subjects to take an oath acknowledging the King as supreme head of the Church in England. More refuses to sign, is imprisoned, found guilty of treason and is finally executed in 1535. Bolt's play won the Tony Award for Best Play and the 1966 Oscar for Best Picture.
