GOD ON TRIAL

by Frank Cottrell-Boyce

for an original television series produced by Hat Trick Productions

Directed by Murphy Scott Wulfgar

April 1 - 17, 2022

First Central Congregational Church

Directions

In Auschwitz concentration camp during WW2, a group of inmates undergo selection for the gas chamber. As they await their fate and faced with the horror of their experiences, their minds turn to the eternal question - how can a just God allow so much suffering in the world? They decide to put God on trial for breaking his covenant with the Jewish people.

Cottrell-Boyce’s script takes this as a starting point for a dramatic, moving, and challenging exploration of the timeless questions about the nature of a god that allows suffering, and how humans strive to find meaning in the face of disaster and evil.

 

God On Trial is a universal piece, which attempts to look at some of the most perplexing issues, but it is also about what keeps the human spirit alive and how, even when faced with impending death, the human spirit can flourish.
