The First Protestant
Smock Alley Theatre, Wednesday 23rd January - Saturday 26th January 2019
The First Protestant is a gripping psychological drama with moments of intensity and also unexpected comedy. The play presents a tense duel between Martin Luther and the shadowy figure of the Analyst, and through it the life and struggles of Luther, the monk who defied the Catholic church with profound repercussions for Christendom. The play probes the far-reaching influence of Luther’s thinking on such leaders as Bismark and Hitler and also finds echoes in current events such as a European banking collapse and threats to global peace. The First Protestant written by Gerry Farrell, is directed by Prin Duignan and stars Michael Roper as Martin Luther and Gerry Farrell as the analyst.
