The celebrated play that draws from historical events in the Norman conquest of England to create a profound portrait of a man's soul--and a transcendent vision of the human spirit

From its powerful opening scene, of a naked King Henry II praying at the tomb of Thomas Becket, to the final wrenching act of ultimate self-sacrifice, Jean Anouilh's Becket remains a towering achievement in the history of the theatre. Winner of the Antoinette Perry Award for Best Play of the Season, Anouilh's monumental work--introduced in this edition by the acclaimed writer and critic Andre Aciman--draws from historical events in the Norman conquest of England to paint a profound and enduring portrait of the saint and martyr.
