Confessions of a young Irish Catholic woman. No forgiveness needed.

“It’s entirely possible you’ve written me off since the day I put on my Repeal the 8th jumper and aren’t even listening now because of the way I voted. Both times. Sorry about that. Actually no. I’m sorry, God, I’m not sorry"

Following critically-acclaimed runs at the Theatre Upstairs in Dublin and VAULT Festival, Minerva Productions are proud to present Sacrament as part of the King’s Head Theatre’s digital on demand season, Plays On Film.

In a small University town in the UK in the early 2010s, before Repeal the 8th, Queer Eye and same-sex marriage, Avicii is playing on full volume, vodka cranberry is flowing and a young Irish Catholic woman starts to question her sexuality.

The Church, the Bible and her Auntie Deidre might all agree that ‘man and woman were made for each other,’ but her openly lesbian mate Sophie sets her pulse racing, throwing her relationship with faith, family and the future into jeopardy. 

Filmed in high definition by the award-winning Shoot Media, this powerful, funny and thought provoking monologue asks whether it’s possible to reconcile a religious upbringing with finding sexual empowerment as a young woman in the 21st century.

Available to watch on demand via our new streaming service, KHTV, from Thursday 22 April 2021.

Trigger Warning: This production contains scenes of sexual violence.
