Resurgens is honored to present this stirring early modern account of one leader’s defiant stand against mob violence and groupthink in an era of autocratic misrule. Partially penned by Shakespeare, Sir Thomas More offers both a timely and timeless drama of individual courage in the face of mass conformity. The original production was banned from the Elizabethan stage by the Master of the Revels, Edmund Tilney, because of its controversial references to insurrection. Now, after 400 years, Dr. Brent Griffin will revive this neglected classic for the first professional performance of the play ever staged on this side of the Atlantic.
