Thank you to everyone who attended our Staged Reading at HERE Arts Center, NY!
Everyone expects Martin Luther (played by Brant Rotnem) to follow in his father’s footsteps, but Martin’s got plans of his own.
Martin Luther learns that life as a priest is not all it’s cracked up to be—especially with crooked clergy like Johann Tetzel (played by Paul Aguirre) conning the poor out of their last shilling.
A free-spirited nun named Katharina Von Bora (played by Haviland Stillwell) hears rumors of a monk named Martin Luther who dares to speak out against the greed and corruption of the Church. She wonders if she, too, could have the courage to rebel.
Martin Luther’s revolution has opened the door to an outbreak of violent copy-cats—One of the worst being Andreas Karlstadt (played by Declan Meagher.)
