A trial for the soul of Martin Luther, and the prosecutor…is the Devil. In the new original play Martin Luther on Trial, Luther’s beloved wife, Katarina, defends him as witnesses including Adolf Hitler, Sigmund Freud, Rabbi Josel, St. Paul, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Pope Francis take the stand. Five hundred years since Luther ignited the Protestant Revolt against Rome, he continues to spark intense debate. You be the judge in this witty, provocative exploration of one of history’s most explosive personalities and the religious and political controversies he unleashed. DC Metro Theatre Arts says Martin Luther on Trial, “Joins the canon of great theatrical works about major figures in religion…But this play goes them one better: Martin Luther on Trial is quite the divine comedy, and it’s funny as hell.” TheaterMania says, “Martin Luther on Trial delivers high drama…a complex ballet of ideas choreographed with clarity and precision.”
