An Artistic Fraud production
In 2013, Nova Scotian choral conductor Scott Jones was left paralyzed after a homophobic attack. Soon after, his story reached international attention for a remarkable reason: he chose to publicly forgive his attacker.
Headlines ran all over the world inspiring thousands moved by Scott's uncommon act, including Artistic Fraud who approached him to co-create a piece of theater based on his experience.
The story of I Forgive You cuts straight to the heart of mercy and is accompanied by a children's choir singing the music of Sigur Ros, conducted by Scott himself live on stage in this brilliant braiding of rich theatrical invention and searing unavoidable truth.
