FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

A dazzling, intellectual detection story about a dying priest who is sent, by his superiors, in the role of the devil's advocate to investigate and, if possible, discredit a dead man's claim to sanctity. The man was an Italian patriot who was beaten by the communists and finally killed by the Nazis. Miracles are attributed to him. Was he a holy man, or a sinner? He was, it turns out, a bit of both.

"The wonderful things which can be found in the theatre, in rare and golden moments spirit, beauty, intelligence, skill, and the effect of transporting a playgoer far away from himself came together with the production of The Devil's Advocate.... Superlative." - New York World Telegram & Sun

"A powerful and absorbing drama." - The New York Times
