    Bonhoeffer's Cost - The Texas Premiere by Agape Theatre

    Agape Theatre is proud to announce our upcoming production of BONHOEFFER’S COST. Written by Mary Ruth Clarke with Time Gregory, BONHOEFFER’S COST tells the exciting and moving true story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Agape’s production will be the play’s Texas Premiere.

    BONHOEFFER’S COST finds Dietrich Bonhoeffer imprisoned in Berlin’s Tegel Prison during the darkest days of WWII. As the war rages around him and his faith is tested, Bonhoeffer deliberates the cost attached to acting from one’s convictions. In a blind race between the forces of good and evil, will Dietrich make it out alive?

    A Lutheran pastor and theologian in Germany during WWII, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was extremely vocal in his resistance to the Nazi dictatorship, including the Nazi persecution of Jewish people. In addition to his political resistance, Bonhoeffer is known for writing countless books and essays on theology and Christianity, especially The Cost of Discipleship.

    Agape’s production of BONHOEFFER’S COST will be staged in the Sanctuary at Palm Valley Lutheran Church in Round Rock. The beautiful historic landmark was built in 1896. The building’s Gothic style and incredible stained glass windows are sure to enhance the production.

    Directed by Jeff Davis, BONHOEFFER’S COST stars Cory Grabenstein as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Rachel Bremer-Lewis as Maria Von Wedemeyer/Charlotte Friedenthal, and Zach Bond as Klaus Bonhoeffer/Maetz. BONHOEFFER’S COST also features an original musical score by Brian Losoya. The full cast and creative team will be announced soon.
