"A Man for All Seasons" at the Factory Theatre in Boston

The Porpentine Players will perform Robert Bolt's "A Man for All Seasons" in January at the Factory Theatre, 791 Tremont Street, Boston. "A Man for All Seasons" was made famous in the 1960s by stage and screen performances by Paul Scofield as Sir Thomas More.

Thomas More, the ultimate statesman of conscience, is Henry VIII's Lord Chancellor and friend. He objects to the King's efforts to divorce Catherine of Aragon, and ultimately pays with his life for his stand.

We'll go on the first night. To get your tickets, just go to Brown Paper Tickets - via this link:

 http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/469058?discount=PorpentineSS&show_widget=1&date=902276

enter the promotional code: PricklyPartners (no space) and you can get a special price of $10. There are only a few tix left at this rate. Otherwise tix are $14 plus fee which is a bargain anyway. BOOK EARLY AS THERE ARE NOT MANY SEATS IN THIS THEATER!

If anyone is having a problem with the code, they can just email Ron ([masked]) (this is a different Ron by the way!) and he'll put them on a special list to pay the discounted price at the door.

For more information about the Porpentine Players and the show, please see our website: www.porpentineplayers.com.

If you have any questions or comments, please let Ron know: [masked].

Thank you, and I hope to see you at the show!,
Ron Lacey


If anyone wants to meet for dinner first, let Ange know - Parish Cafe - Mass Ave is close by..

    Ange -- thanks so much for organizing that production. who would have thought in such a small theatre one would produce such a remarkable production. I saw that play with Emilyn Willians when it opened in NY many years ago. About every two or three years I pull out my dvd of the Paul scofield film version of the play to uplift my spirits. But that was a great production performed for 49 people. It was magnificent!!

    if you look at the scofield film, there are a few things he played differently from what Lacey did. it would have also enhanced the experience to meet and discuss the play after the event. thanks
