Viva Cristo Rey

Christo Rey

Viva Cristo Rey is a two-act play by Cathal Gallagher and Fred Martinez and was produced by The G.K. Chesterton Theatre Company in 2011 in Los Angeles and directed by Angel Duran.

In Mexico in the 1920's, religion was suppressed. People were forbidden to worship freely. Severe penalties, from imprisonment to death, were imposed for clandestine worship. Although the repression was widespread, the world took little notice. A veil of silence descended.

Into this turmoil entered an unassuming, guitar playing Padre. He set out to minister to his flock, going from house to house, pursued by government agents. In a very short time he would become a world wide figure. His name was Miguel Pro.
