Love The Sinner

Director Matthew Dunster
The National Theatre

Michael, a married man running a small business, accompanies a squabbling delegation of bishops to Africa as  a lay volunteer. There, an unsettling encounter with a hotel porter leads to a series of agonising moral dilemmas that compromise his work, his marriage and his faith.

Love the Sinner premiered at the Cottesloe Theatre in May 2010.
