Touring UK February and March 2022!
FORGIVENESS - my first new solo show in five years is touring the UK in February and March 2022! TICKETS HERE.
The much delayed (covid) show about becoming a father and reconciling that with an abusive childhood is my first one-person show since EVERY BRILLIANT THING.
Forgiveness – a true story by Jonny Donahoe.
Jonny does not know his Dad. He is very suddenly a Dad. ‘Forgiveness’ is a new solo show about the cycles of abuse that form and affect who we are; if and how we can escape them and move on. A show about how the stories we tell about our lives become the stories we live and relive. A show about reluctant fathers, bad life choices and one very unfortunate chicken.
Hilarious and heart-breaking in equal measure, ‘Forgiveness’ shows how despite a childhood shattered by abuse it can be possible to reach a place of peace.
Directed by P Burton-Morgan. Presented by Makin Projects.

The brilliant film of "Every Brilliant Thing" recorded live at Barrow Street Theatre in New York, directed by Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, (a filming of the original show directed by George Perrin) is available now to watch via HBO GO in the USA or NOW TV in the UK. I'm so proud of this film, recorded over the last week of our five-month run off-Broadway.
