This dramatic celebration of the life of the humanist, scholar, politician, and saint is a key element of the season. The play is proof of the collaborative nature of Elizabethan theatre in which Shakespeare participated. The play revels in More, the prankster's antics and paints a compelling portrait of his detached attitude to declining fortunes and his impending doom.
