Confessionals

20:00, 19 Jul

'This is not a pub. This is not a crowd. This is a mob. It's a box of drunken confessionals.'

The debut full length show from award-winning poet, Victoria McNulty.

Confessionals combines contemporary spoken word with traditional theatre. A coming of age character piece, it tells the story of a shift in an East End boozer, where a young barmaid encounters the devastating consequences of a society riven by poverty, sectarianism and domestic violence. Through the inner city strife she finds her power in activism, hope and raw human potential.

Written and performed by Victoria McNulty, with original music from Abi Normal, and produced and directed by Sonnet Youth, Confessionals challenges the steotypes of working class Scotland and asks who is to blame for a society cleaved in two.

'Her lyricism aches like a bruise with a sharp punch of dark humour throughout' (State of the Arts)
