Jean Anouih’s Tony Award winning play “Becket” tells the troubled story of the relationship between Thomas à Becket and King Henry II. Set in England during the 12th century, a time of political and religious upheaval, “Becket” addresses multiple themes and ideas that remain relevant today – specifically love and hatred, resistance and collaboration, and church and state. Although Becket begins the play without honor, he closes the play as a man who dies to defend God’s honor.
