The tragedy of Sir Thomas More philosopher, author, politician and saint is an integral piece of the great historical Tudor soap opera.
This extraordinary play by Robert Bolt was first performed at the Globe Theatre, London in 1960 followed by a critically acclaimed run on Broadway.
It is however most remembered as the multi academy awarded movie starring Paul Scofield, Wendy Hiller and Orson Wells.
This thought provoking play about a man and his conscience is never more timely than today. David Frum’s book “Trumpocracy” even references “Seasons” when he quotes Republican Eliot Cohen: “…there is a point where crossing a line even an arbitrary line means as Sir Thomas More says in A Man for All Seasons, letting go without hope of ever finding yourself again.”
Opening March 26 2019, the play runs for ten shows Tuesdays through Saturdays until April 6 2019. Tickets are $23.00 and can be purchased in advance by calling the Box Office at (613) 831-4435 or by visiting us online. Tickets, subscriptions, and more information can all be found at www.kanatatheatre.ca

Kanata Theatre is an all-volunteer community theatre operating in Kanata, Ontario, Canada. It began in 1968 as a play reading group in a sleepy bedroom community, and now has over 400 members who put on five main-stage plays and a children’s holiday play annually in its own, modern 350-seat theatre, the Ron Maslin Playhouse.
