What would you give up on order to stay true to your beliefs? Your position, your home, your family…your life?
These were the questions which faced Sir Thomas More, the brilliant 16th century author, scholar, lawyer, and devout Roman Catholic. More’s refusal to support King Henry VIII in his break from the church in Rome placed him in direct conflict with the King, at peril of losing all.
The fascinating story of a man keeping his integrity while meeting the demands of his king, country and church is presented when the Birmingham Village Players open their 90th season with “A Man For All Seasons” by Robert Bolt on Friday, Sept. 7 at 8 p.m.
Peformances run through Sunday, Sept. 16 on select dates. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. The Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.
The production is directed by Dale Feldpausch. The image above, courtesy of the Village Players of Birmingham, depicts (left to right) Joyce McGookey of Royal Oak, Mike Dundas of Southfield and Kori Beilaniec of Livonia.
