In Absolution, the innermost thoughts of a vicious serial killer are exposed. Is he an avenging angel on a divine mission or a mass murderer? With brutally clinical accounts of his victims, Absolution is a challenging, often shocking, and captivating tale of a man who has taken upon himself the sins of so many, and has unleashed on them a terrible vengeance. Written and performed by Owen O'Neill, a Perrier Award-winning comic, Absolution premiered at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe to great acclaim.
