Through the eyes of thirteen-year-old Hermann von Kessenbrück, 1534 Münster was like any boring hometown: a large moat ... annoying neighbors ... a fervent people’s movement to depose the Pope. But, when an Anabaptist prophet arrives to foretell the nearing apocalypse and a war against Catholicism, Hermann is more interested in his first love: the prophet’s beautiful wife.

 

Prophets of a Doom is a bloody, spectacular, and acerbically comedic staging of the weirder-than-fiction true history of the 1534 Münster Rebellion.

"Displaying such a tragic story on stage seems like a daunting task, yet this show somehow created a lighthearted, entertaining and hilarious performance that kept its audience engaged throughout .... While the performance consisted only of the play's first act, there was sufficient character development and a series of dramatic events that left the audience hungry for more as the actors, after taking their final bow, danced off stage."
