Portrays the conflict of loyalties between church and state as they influenced the lives of two powerful men in English history.

Anouilh’s play anatomises the relationship between the Norman Henry II and Saxon Thomas a Becket, 100 years after William the Conqueror.

In their younger days, there is a great deal of camaraderie and male bonding, in some ways reminiscent of that between Henry V and Falstaff, as the pair spend ten years together hunting, whoring and warring”. Perhaps surprisingly
