why watch the two popes

This humor-laced biological drama is a spectacle by the acclaimed writer of the Academy Award-winning Bohemian Rhapsody, Darkest Hour and The Theory of Everything, Anthony McCarten.The play starring famous actors Anton Lesser and Nicholas Woodeson sparked a major motion picture and is set to make an iconic short-run comeback at the Rose theatre this September. Delving into one of the most secretive institutions of the world, “The Two Popes” illuminates the turn of events behind the shocking resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in 2013, the first Pope in 700 years and the political debate surrounding canonical law. Moments of revelation with a pinch of good old humor enacted by eminent actors is what makes this compelling drama a must-watch!
