Talk About The Passion is an intense, twisting study of guilt and grief, and the media’s fascination with serial killers.

A young child is horrifically murdered, leaving his father tortured by impossible guilt. Meanwhile the autobiography of the serial killer is a hit publication and the publisher Evelyn Ayles has made a fortune from the book. Now Jason Carroway is in her office, and he seems to be angry about something more than her rejection of his manuscript. He’s determined to make her hear his story, one way or another.

The play is a moving and powerful exploration of loss, society's collusion in the glamorisation of evil, and the desire for justice. Talk about the Passion was first performed in 1998 at the Birds Nest Theatre, London.
