Description - Becket by Jean Anouilh

Anouilh's classic historical tale of conflict between church and state, in a major new translation by Frederic and Stephen Raphael In Becket, Anouilh presents the history of England under Henry II as if it was France under German occupation. As Henry's long-time political playmate, Thomas's elevation to Archbishop of Canterbury forces him to sacrifice the love of his leader for his newfound love of the church: "If I become archbishop I shall cease to be your friend." Becket was first produced at the Theatre Montparnasse in 1959.This new translation is published to tie in with a production of the play opening at London's Theatre Royal, Haymarket.
