From his cell in the early hours of the morning, Dr Harold Shipman breaks his silence to record a confessional tape, laying down his version of events as he prepares to take one last life.

 

Performer and playwright Edwin Flay, himself a grandson of one of the victims, teases out the choices, compulsions and fixations that drove Shipman.

 

With unflinching candour, he dissects the motives of the most prolific serial killer of modern times, and interrogates society's attitudes towards death, justice and compassion.


The world premiere of The Quality of Mercy is presented by Sarah Lawrie for Nailed Productions in association with The Courtyard Theatre, directed by Bernie C. Byrnes.
