The Divine: A Play for Sarah Bernhardt provides the opportunity for katharsis because it discusses a very uncomfortable and taboo subject: immoral actions by the leaders of the church. This play addresses not only the significance of the arts in society, but it discusses its purpose in addressing the injustices of society. As such, this play discusses a leader of the church abusing his power and molesting a child. This is a subject people refrain from discussing due to it being highly controversial. In tackling the truth, this play does not shy away from the not easy to talk about topics.
