LutherThursday 9 November 2017
McNeill Theatre, Larne
Exactly 500 years ago, Martin Luther, an obscure Augustinian monk, nailed a document to a church door in Wittenberg, Germany and changed the world forever.
This remarkable anniversary is commemorated with a production of ‘Luther’ by John Osborne, an award-winning play presented by Centre Stage Theatre Company.Osborne is one of the most significant and influential playwrights of 20th century theatre, best known for his ground-breaking ‘Look Back in Anger’.
’Luther’ gives a powerful portrait of the monk as he agonizes with his doubts and disillusions and subsequently the consequences of his world-shattering cry for Church reform.
