Four months into The Last Confession world tour and audiences in Canada, America and Australia have all been enjoying the show.


Set within the corridors of power in the Vatican, The Last Confession explores the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of Pope John Paul I in 1978. He died only 33 days after being elected and before he could set his liberal reforms into place. The Vatican refuses to conduct an official investigation into the death but the politically savvy Cardinal Giovanni Benelli (played by David Suchet), who had engineered the election of Pope John Paul I, is determined to find the truth.

What the critics say:

 “4 stars  – more suspense than the average murder mystery”  The Star.  Read the full article here.

“An exhilarating ride. A conspiracy thriller at the highest levels of the Catholic church.” Bondo Wyszpolski, Orange County Register

“The chance to see Suchet and O’Callaghan on stage together — two pros lending their keen acting intelligence to the story.” Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

 “Five minutes in, I found myself leaning forward in my seat, being drawn into one of the best pieces of theatre I have experienced since Red.” Keri Tombazian, 94.7 The Wave

 The cast are now on the last leg of the tour with performances scheduled in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney until the 12th October.
