The Play

God has no Country tells the fascinating story of Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty’s war time exploits in Rome. Told from the Monsignor’s point of view,  the play focuses on O’Flaherty’s struggles as he and his colleagues set about the task of protecting those in need, from German occupancy of Rome. After the outbreak of WW2, in autumn of 1942 the Monsignor hid many anti-Fascists and Jews from the Gestapo, in monasteries and convents and in his own residence.  In spring of 1943, defying a Gestapo order to arrest him on sight, with the help of brave friends he established The Rome Escape Line to hide Allied escapees. By the end of the war, they had secured the safety of over 6,500 people.

The story was also the subject of a film made in 1983, The Scarlet and the Black which starred Gregory Peck in the role of the Monsignor.
