Agape Theatre presents Texas Premiere production of BONHOEFFER'S COST, written by Mary RutH Clarke with Tim Gregory and directed by Jeff Davis. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

BONHOEFFER'S COST stars Agape newcomers Cory Grabenstein as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Keoni Ramo as prison guard Klaus Klopstock, Frank Benge as the evil Judge Advocate Rott, Rebecca Rosenberg as Bonhoeffer's fiancée Maria, and TJ Condit as Bonhoeffer's brother-in-law Hans Dohnanyi. Agape Theatre alum Zach Bond rounds out the cast as Bonhoeffer's brother, Klaus.

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. Out of his resistance to the Nazi regime and their attempted control of the religious community, Bonhoeffer founded the underground Confessing Church. He was also a member of the Abwehr, a German military intelligence organization at the center of the anti-Hitler resistance. In addition to his political resistance, Bonhoeffer is known for writing countless books and essays on theology and Christianity, especially The Cost of Discipleship.
