Splódar Theatre Company presents The First Protestant Saturday 19th October 2019 8pm

The life and struggles of Luther, the monk who defied the Catholic Church with such profound repercussions for Christendom.

A gripping psychological drama with moments of intensity and also unexpected comedy, The First Protestant presents a tense duel between Martin Luther (Michael Roper) and The Analyst (Gerry Farrell).

 Finding echoes in current events, Luther's Europe is one where there is a peasant revolt caused by oppressive economic austerity, a possible banking collapse in Germany, the Europe-wide Union of the Holy Roman Empire in danger of fragmentation, the Ottoman Empire threatening the peace of Europe, and the invention of the printing press offering the possibility of free dissemination of information.  

Tickets £12/ £10(Includes £1 development contribution)
