Camerado & The Trial of Pius XII

Ratings:
Length: 170 pages2 hours

Summary

Camerado is a play presenting the very dramatic life and compelling thoughts of Walt Whitman, who remains the foremost American poet of the greatness possible in the human spirit, and in the spirit of a vital democracy. His inspiring views and tough criticisms, expressed in simple, but beautiful and powerful language remain as critically relevant to us today as they were in his lifetime. History placed Pius XII on trial during his reign as pope, from 1939 to 1958, testing how a moral and religious leader, in his case of the largest Christian church on earth, should lead in the midst of World War II, the Cold War, and horrible mass crimes against humanity. This play presents very dramatic but fair views of that test and how the pope performed vis a vis them, and provokes thoughts about moral leaders facing great challenges in our time.
