CSP Theatre Presents Luther, Oct. 26-29

Concordia University, St. Paul’s Department of Theatre, Dance and Music presents the play Luther by John Osborne, Oct. 26-29 at 7:30 p.m., at the E.M. Pearson Theatre. The play features CSP students and is directed by Mark Rosenwinkel (’77).

Luther an is an epic retelling of one of the great epochs in Western civilization, this play is an exploration of the larger-than-life personality of the great reformer himself: passionate, fiery, and earthy. At times, this Luther is the quintessential “angry young man,” fighting against all the great powers that govern his life. Then all at once he reveals himself to have the sensitivity of an innocent child desperately in need of love and protection. In writing that is often raw, direct and emotional – much like the legacy of the historical Luther himself – the play presents a vivid portrait of a man whose many contradictions and personal struggles nevertheless led to one of the great spiritual and political revolutions in human history
