About the play

cast and production team for Becoming Calvin
Washington, D.C., September 21, 2012

Becoming Calvin celebrates the Frenchman who was a defining figure of the Protestant Reformation. John Calvin came of age during the Renaissance, but he became a man for all time. The events of his life remain surprisingly relevant: modern audiences will recognize the human drama behind shifting allegiances and challenges to authority.

Becoming Calvin explores the lives of characters living at the crossroads of history, caught up in the complex relationships between royalty and Rome, leaders of the Church and leaders of state. The play takes the audience on a journey with one extraordinary young scholar as he realizes his destiny, as it asks the question: What would you give up for your freedom?
