Wild Justice

Sat 1 Feb 2014

'Revenge is a kind of wild justice, which the more a man's nature runs to, the more ought law to weed it out.'

Is Francis Bacon right? Where does justice end and revenge begin? And where does forgiveness come in? Brighton Festival Associate Company Hydrocracker invites you to join in their quest to develop a Revenge Play for the 21st century. Featuring research material, performed scenarios and a panel including Dr Mark Devenny (Centre for Applied Politics, Philosophy and Ethics), Maria Cantacuzino (founder of the Forgiveness Project) and Jo Berry (founder of Building Bridges for Peace and whose father was a victim of the bombing of Brighton's Grand Hotel), Hydrocracker will provoke, challenge and coax a group response to the question of revenge.
