18 Oct

Confessions

If  you knew that you were going to Heaven no matter what you did, what would you do? That’s the question at the centre of the Royal Lyceum’s latest production, Confessions of a Justified Sinner (Friday 16 October – Saturday 7 November).

In this dark thriller, Robert Wringhim’s powerful faith in predestination means he knows his name is in the Book of the Saved. He will be going to Heaven and nothing he does can change it.

Based on James Hogg’s classic 1824 novel, Confessions of a Justified Sinner looks at what a man will do when freed (in his own mind at least) from any moral restraints.

When Wringhim’s religious certainty is combined with the devious whisperings of a mysterious figure known as Gil-Martin, he finds himself caught up in a blood-soaked life of criminal activity.

Mark Thomson directs his own adaptation of this thought-provoking play. The cast includes Ryan Fletcher and Iain Robertson.
