Thinking Anglicans

The Last Confession

Last week’s Church Times carried my review of the new play at the Chichester Festival Theatre under the title Post-mortem on the year of three popes.

It has since been announced that The Last Confession will open in London in June at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket.

Let’s put it like this: you know something about the institution from the kinds of rumours it generates. Gossip and talk is not something in the control of hierarchy, but is a possession of the people based on the institution and its subcultures. When people talk, then we know something about the body, whether the talk is true or not.

How to apply this to Anglicans? Well, by listening. A lot of the time I listen and then ask the question, “Why is she saying this like she does: what does it represent?”

Any chance of a “spoiler”?
