Although it's been nearly 500 years since Martin Luther fanned the flames of Protestant revolt against the medieval Catholic Church, his ideologies still continue to spark intense debate. In Martin Luther on Trial, the original play imagines a provocative courtroom drama where the German professor of theology must take the stand in defense of his religious and political controversies. Aided by his beloved wife Katrina, Luther is up against a wicked prosecutor -- who happens to be the Devil himself -- and a witness stand that consists of Adolf Hitler, Sigmund Freud, Martin Luther King Jr. and Pope Francis. Catch the verdict when Martin Luther On Trial brings its witty and incisive examination to D.C.'s Lansburgh Theatre.
