NAC Premiere

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 theatre 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. 

All tickets are $15 for our preview performance on March 1.
