Jonny Donahoe: Forgiveness


"Painfully honest, funny, joyous... possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop"

Guardian (on Every Brilliant Thing)

Hilarious and moving throughout, will make you laugh until you cry and probably cry until you laugh, too. A must-see.” 

Sunday Post (on Jonny & the Baptists)

Hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure, Forgiveness shows how despite a childhood shattered by abuse it can be possible to reach a place of peace.

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.

Jonny Donahoe is the co-creator and performer of Every Brilliant Thing, which he performed more than four hundred times over four continents, including five months off-Broadway. The show was eventually filmed and screened on HBO. He is also the frontman of musical-comedy-satirists, Jonny and The Baptists.
