IN THE NAME OF THE SON is anexciting new play chronicling the extraordinary life of The Guildford 4’s GerryConlon following his release from prison in 1989.

 

Who will ever forget the TVimages of a wild-eyed, fist-pumping man, storming up to a bank of microphonesoutside The Old Bailey, proclaiming to the world, “I am a totally innocentman!”

 

The story of what happened nextand what kind of man that emerged from 14 years of soul-destroying imprisonmentis simply the stuff of legend.

 

IN THE NAME OF THE SON chartsConlon’s remarkable journey into ‘freedom’ as he received and spent over£1million pounds, became a cause-celebre at the Hollywood Oscars and ran in thesame circles as Johnny Depp, Shane McGowan and Daniel Day Lewis. Conlon seemedto have it all but away from the glamour, fuelled by an addiction tocrack-cocaine, his life was spiralling out of control.

 

Plagued with the guilt ofbelieving he was responsible for the death of his father, Guiseppe in prison,Gerry Conlon struggled with powerful self-loathing. When he found himselfsearching bins in the backstreets of London for food, he knew he had to dosomething. What emerges from the darkness is Conlon’s resilience and hiseventual life-changing recovery to beat his demons and become a world-renownedHuman Rights campaigner against miscarriages of justice, similar to his own.
