The Last Confession

Ahmanson Theatre

The Last Confession

An exhilarating ride. A conspiracy thriller at the highest levels of the Catholic church.

The chance to see Suchet and O'Callaghan on stage together—two pros lending their keen acting intelligence to the story.

In 1978, a little-known country priest is inaugurated as Pope John Paul I in an uneasy compromise. With the promise of liberal reforms, the "Smiling Pope" warns three hostile cardinals that they will be removed. Thirty-three days after his election, he is found dead and no autopsy is performed.

But that’s only the beginning of the story…

David Suchet (Agatha Christie’s Poirot, PBS) stars in a gripping mystery, inspired by the true-life event, pitting power against faith in a battle for the ultimate truth.

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.
