OUR GOD'S BROTHER by Karol Wojtyla

A special performance to celebrate the canonization of Blessed John Paul II

Directed by Peter Dobbins and produced by The Storm Theatre and Blackfriars Repertory Theatre

In anticipation of the canonization of Blessed John Paul II on April 27th, The Storm Theatre will present Our God’s Brother, written by the late Pontiff, while he was known as Karol Wojtyła.

Karol Wojtyła (Pope John Paul II), spent much of his young adult life in pursuit of a career in the theatre before responding to the call to priesthood. His work grew out of his experiences with Mieczysław Kotlarczk and the Rhapsodic Theatre, a group that began performing in secret during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

Our God's Brother, Wojtyla’s most personal work, tells the story of freedom fighter-turned artist Adam Chmielowski (better known as Brother Albert) who later takes religious vows and becomes a great protector of the poor. Adam’s dilemma in choosing between an artistic vocation and the religious path strongly mirrors the future Pope’s own vocational struggles, and highlights the courageous virtue he exemplified in serving as witness to Christ.

The Storm Theatre’s entire 2012 season was chosen by The New York Times as one of “the years most galvanizing moments” in theatre. Established in 1997, Storm is a not-for-profit company that utilizes classics, under-acknowledged gems from the world repertory, and vigorous new visions of life today.

Our God’s Brother will play APRIL 4 – MAY 3, 2014 at The Storm Theatre (At the Church of Notre Dame, on Morningside Drive between 114th and 115th street (1 block from Columbia University) with performances Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 PM and Saturday Matinees at 2:00 PM.
