The First Protestant
January 18, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm€15
After full houses in Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon, the hugely popular “The First Protestant” is back! Its the last chance to see it in the North West before it heads to Smock Alley in Dublin at the end of January! Written by Gerry Farrell and directed by Prin Duignan it 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 such profound repercussions for Christendom. Finding echoes in current events, Luthers 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. Actors Michael Roper and Gerry Farrell give outstanding performances as Luther and the Analyst. The result is “an enlightening thought provoking and enjoyable theatrical experience”
