The play, directed by Susan Bradford of Issaquah, is based on the true story of Sir Thomas More's silent stand against King Henry VIII's desire to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, in order to marry Anne Boleyn, and the struggle for leadership of the Catholic Church. More's battle of silent disapproval ends in imprisonment, trial, betrayal and eventual death. His struggle for his own sense of self and conscience was Bolt's hope to serve is an inspiration for today's audiences.
