Honest Theatre Presents: The Confessional
Honest Theatre opens its second season with the Chicago premiere of Jayson Akridge’s thrilling new work, THE CONFESSIONAL. The intrigue begins when mild-mannered high school teacher Stanley Prentiss confesses to a grisly murder, but the police cannot prove he has done anything at all. Has he truly committed a crime or is he just creating a twisted game of cat and mouse with detectives Carter and Bryce? Delve into the mind of psychopath for an evening with this edge-of-your-seat crime drama.
Jayson Akridge’s The Confessional is not only a gripping thriller that will make your heart pound; it is also a provoking meditation on evil that will make your mind work. –Paulanne Simmons, Curtain Up
Crime dramas are a guilty pleasure of mine…so I had a feeling I’d enjoy The Confessional, which takes place entirely in a police station interview room. And yes, I did. But I also thought that I’d be able to figure out the various twists of The Confessional before they happened—and boy howdy, was I ever wrong about that. –Kimberly Wadsworth, nytheatre.com
