Produced by special arrangement with G.K. Chesterton Plays

This play takes place in Mexico during the mid-1920's.  It was the administration (1924-1928) of Plutarco Elías Calles, a ruthless anti-clerical and anti-religious individual who decided to put teeth into the anti-clerical laws that had been passed over a decade before.  The era marked one of the most horrific chapters in Mexico's history.   It was into this hellish environment that the fun-loving jokester and troubadour Fr. Miguel Augustin Pro was thrust.  Fr. Miguel was the "secret agent" of Christ.  While wearing different disguises, he managed to bring the Sacraments, hope and Christ's loving mercy to many in Mexico City and other parts of Mexico.  This play truly reflects Bl. Miguel's audacity and courage, but his commitment to souls to the point of death.
