Part of The Mulligan Collection: Forgiveness

Why Forgive? Real Stories Told Live:

Saturday 3rd March: 18:00

Who is worthy of forgiveness? Join The Forgiveness Project to bear witness to real stories of forgiveness - from the perspective of both the harmed and the harmers.

The Forgiveness Project is a UK-based charity that collects and shares real stories of forgiveness to help break cycles of conflict and create a less vengeful world

 

Real lived experience, film and written testimony will shed light on the twists and turns of the human heart and perspectives often left unheard. Stories told first hand provide insight, provoke curiosity and spark much-needed conversations. Featuring storytellers such as Marian Partington, this event will highlight perspectives from The Forgiveness Project and invite comments and questions from the audience.

Why Forgive? is part of THE MULLIGAN COLLECTION, a series of theatre and academia exploring Forgiveness and its role within society and art. It will stand alongside ‘Reflective Circle’, also by the Forgiveness Project, ‘Talk About The Passion’ by Graham Farrow and ‘Ian Done A Bad Thing’ by Sam Carrack and James Barbour, Co-Founders of Mulligan Theatre Company.

Reflective Circle:

Sunday 4th March: 16:30

Together we will explore and navigate the unresolved issues and unanswered questions that emerge from the plays.

The Forgiveness Project is an organisation that holds space for complexity, sharing stories with the world that add rich and meaningful dialogue

 

Following on from the Mulligan Collection, and from Saturday night’s “The Forgiveness Project: Live”, we will offer a reflective circle for unanswered questions to be shared, and new perspectives and insights revealed

 

Because our work is rooted in inquiry rather than argument we don’t claim to have all the answers but we love grappling with difficult questions – for instance how can human beings cause such unimaginable harm to one another? And sometimes we find that by digging deep into the thorny topics of revenge, forgiveness and justice, some clarity emerges!
