The name of the play about More is the Book of Sir Thomas More or Book
about Sir Thomas More.  One page or so may have been written by
Shakespeare.  It is sometimes attributed to Anthony Munday.  The
Riverside discusses it.

An incomplete text written by various people, a few pages are thought to
be by Shakespeare, published several times, easily found by looking
under "Moore" in the Oxford Companion to English Literature. But Why oh
Why does the Oxford UP "Shakespeare: A Bibliographical Guide" ed by
Stanley Wells not have an index! You can find it discussed there on
pages 398-90. Anouilh's play is probably more interesting, to say
nothing of "A Man for All Seasons" by Bolt on the same topic. Good
reading. An Sonjae
