Live at first present “Bonhoeffer” The Musical.
One man’s epic Journey to overcome the forces of evil in the name of good.
Sunday, May 19
Starring – Tally Sessions as Bonhoeffer and Julia Knitel as Maria
In may 1939, Hitler’s militaristic policies mean that war isn’t only inevitable, but also imminent. As part of the preparations for this calamity, Dietrich Bonhoeffer receives his call-up papers. To the pacifist theologian, the thought of bearing arms constitutes an affront to the very tenets of his faith. He sidesteps the issue by taking flight to America. However, it’s in the New World that he gains the courage to face his nemesis head-on. He returns to Germany and, as Hitler does indeed plunge the world into war, he becomes a double agent in an effort to vanquish the beast from within.
