Sir Thomas More at Tyler Hill House

Charting the rise and fall of Thomas More in a play of three acts, presenting his defence of immigrants, and his refusal to sign Henry VIII's articles against the Church. Sir Thomas More is a relevant and fascinating collaborative play by a number of different writers and the censor. The play features the only monologue to be written in manuscript by Shakespeare's hand.
