In 1987, Paul Bright, a rebellious young Scottish director set out to stage James Hogg’s cult novel Confessions of a Justified Sinner in a series of radical productions across Scotland. In 2010, Untitled Projects began work with the actor George Anton to assemble an archive and exhibition of this almost-forgotten feat of theatre.
In search of the truth, they uncovered a story of obsession, reckless ambition, bad behaviour, bitter memories, and love.
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 life and work of a man who redefined Scottish theatre in the 1980’s.
