ACT TWO

ACT TWO, SCENE ONE

Summary

The Common Man fills us in on what has happened in the two years since the end of Act One. Much has happened. It is an eventful period in history. It is now May of 1532. He begins to read from a book that he carries. The book brags about Englandís ability to compromise even in a situation like the present one. The Church of England came into being by an act of Parliament, not through warfare. It adds that anyone who did not agree met with disaster.


Notes

The book being read by the Common Man makes it sound like, for some people, disaster is much better than war. Those in prison awaiting death might have their own slant on that.

In the time just past, February 11, 1531 to be exact, Parliament made King Henry VIII Supreme Head of the Church of England. Five months later, Henry separated from Katherine and banned her from the Court. The following scene takes place about ten months after that.
