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

Sonnet Youth are proud to present the debut full length show from award winning poet, Victoria McNulty.

Confessionals is reflexive solo performance, combining 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, Confessionals challenges the stereotypes of working class Scotland and asks who is to blame for a society cleaved in two.

“Scotland’s most exciting poetic prospect.”
Darren 'Loki' McGarvey

«Her lyricism aches like a bruise
with a sharp punch of dark humour throughout.»
The State of the Arts

Confessionals is supported by Creative Scotland.
