    Confessional

    Confessional

    Joan of Arc was burned at the stake for witchcraft Gilles de Rais, her captain and medieval super-hero, was convicted of child-murder and sorcery and burned a decade later. 'Confessional' explores the link between the two events, and examines how powerful men can seem to be untouchable and unstoppable.

    Collaboration

    Collaboration

    In 1945 the Parisian-born singer, Edith Piaf, was investigated for charges of collaborating with the Nazi régime. Piaf was a performer, a survivor and a pragmatist, but was she a collaborator? The play raises questions about truth and lies, collaboration and resistance: as relevant today as in 1945.

    The play contains strong language and explicit content; listener discretion is advised.
