Forgiveness is Jonny’s first new solo theatrical show in five years.
Forgiveness is a show about the cycles of abuse that form and affect who we are, how we can escape them and move on. It’s about suddenly having a baby and realising I have to finally confront and accept my own childhood abuse in order to not be a terrible dad. It’s a funny and uplifting show about things that are not always funny and uplifting. I performed a three-week work-in-progress run at Summerhall, as part of Edinburgh Fringe 2019, where I told the story and improvised with the crowd, to help build the show.
A much delayed full UK tour will hopefully begin in January 2021, (Covid and other natural disasters allowing).
