As We Forgive - Devonport
Three Morality Tales for an Amoral Age by Tom Holloway directed by Julian Meyrick toured by Tasmania Performs.
Among Australian dramatists today, Tasmanian Tom Holloway’s work stands out for its subtlety, integrity and grace. In As We Forgive, Holloway explores the questions, “When is doing the wrong thing, the right thing?”; “Are there limits to even the most absolute moral laws?” and “Can evil ever be justified?”. Three characters at the edges of society try to come to terms with the events in their lives. Each has a story to tell. Each has a reason for why they behaved as they did. Tom Holloway’s triple portrait is a searing investigation of contemporary morality. Its language is implacable and sparse. Its narrative plumbs the depths of our duty to others, what it means to transgress, and what it means to forgive.
