From Media Release
'REDEMPTION is a new play by Anthony Crowley being presented as part of La Mama’s Winter 2015 season at the La Mama Courthouse in Carlton.
'The play asks whether the power of forgiveness and redemption in the Catholic Church might allow a history of sexual abuse to continue.
'One night in a remote Catholic parish in rural Australia. Ben arrives at the home of Terry – his life-long mentor and a close friend of a retired Monsignor accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy, thirty years ago. Ben has been sent to investigate the allegation. Terry is a formidable force, determined to muddy the waters and restore Ben’s dwindling faith in the Church. Moment by moment the mystery binding these two men unravels, its horrible truth challenging the fabric of the Catholic Church.
