Theatre / Glennie Hall

The complex question of forgiveness is interrogated in this production.

What sins are or not worthy of forgiveness? The Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Nuremberg trial are two contrasting worlds that tore Lazarus and his subconscious apart. He knows what he stands to lose should the truth come out but guilt convinces him otherwise.
