A play about persecution of Christians and one man’s 14-year ordeal of torture, imprisonment and starvation in communist Romania will be presented Nov. 16 in Lake Country.

“Solitary Refinement” will be performed at 7 p.m. at Lake Country Alliance Church, 12025 Oceola Rd. Admission is by donation. The 75-minute play is for ages 13 and up.

The play tells the story of Richard Wurmbrand, also known as Nicolai Ionescu, who was a Romanian Christian minister of Jewish descent.

Dennis Hassell plays Wurmbrand. Video and state-of-the-art lighting also help to bring the story alive.
