After helping to murder Becket, King Henry II is haunted by memories of their passionate friendship. Appointing Becket as Archbishop was the King's greatest mistake, for Becket finds his allegiance shifting from king and country to God and Church.

    " One of the best plays of the last century, this lavish and sweeping historical drama has it all: romance, politics, betrayal, suicide, murder, repressed longing, and lots of smart, articulate icons of history screaming astounding speeches at one another. Almost manages to out-Shakespeare Shakespeare, this gem of modern French literature became a hit in England and the US too and there's no wondering why with its astute writing and construction. Anouilh's masterpiece, hands down, it deserves a place on the bookshelf of any self- respecting theater collector. "

    " I think I read this during my army stint. Great play. "

    " I must confess my ignorance - although I do admire Anouilh I didn't know he had written a play about Becket, let alone quite a famous one. I'm currently fascinated my medieval culture and saints, so as soon as this play came to my attention I ordered it in and read it at one sitting. Like all Anouilh it is incredibly elegant, poetic, witty and worldly-wise. He doesn't interrogate his characters too much - he just exposes their actions and words: Becket retains a charismatic mystery to the end. I will definitely track the film down now too, and will keep watch for any theatrical productions. "

    " A tight little play about the cost of friendship and loyalty. "
