World Premiere! Based on historical events, this provocative drama tells the story of the charming and clever philandering priest, Urbain Grandier (1590-1634). This 17th-century Don Juan racks up male enemies and lovelorn women with equal ease. But, when an entire convent of nuns falls in love with him, he’s accused of witchcraft—and condemned to be burned at the stake! GUILT delves into the intolerance, xenophobia and persecution of the powers that be—and depicts a collision between five people who cannot tell the truth from lies. Exploring the inner worlds of these conflicted characters sets GUILT apart from other works that have covered similar events.
