Untitled Projects, Scotland
Paul Bright's Confessions of a Justified Sinner | Abbey Theatre, on the Peacock Stage | Oct 7 – 11
In 1987 Paul Bright, a rebellious young Scottish director, set out to stage James Hogg’s Confessions of Justified Sinner in a series of unusual locations across Scotland. Untitled Projects have been working with the actor George Anton to assemble an archive and exhibition of these landmark productions.
Overwhelmed by the richness of the memories that have emerged in the course of that project, they have sought to question the lasting legacy of Paul Bright’s recklessly ambitious, yet incomplete stagings.
Listed as one of The Guardian's top ten best theatre productions of 2013, Paul Bright's Confessions of a Justified Sinner is a celebration and sharing of the forgotten life and radical work of a man who redefined Scottish theatre in the 1980s.
