By Virtue Fall

In one short play Victoria Gimby unleashes a maelstrom of controversy, shored up by strong dramatic writing and exceptionally well-crafted characters.

By Virtue Fall examines the tenuous moral dilemmas faced when Matthew, a devout Catholic, confesses his sexual attraction to children. In the outskirts of Glasgow, Matthew, his wife Jenny and his inexperienced priest struggle to deal with the fallout of Matthew’s confession, forcing all three question where their own faith lies.

Conflicted in belief and thrown into uncertainty, By Virtue Fall leads us to re-evaluate our own moral compass directing to what is intrinsically right and wrong.

This piece premiered at The LOST Theatre in May 2014, followed by a run at The Space, London in April 2015.
