Love The Sinner

Contemporary Drama

The seven deadly sins are alive and kicking in contemporary Scotland.

Love The Sinner is a beautifully produced fusion of performance poetry, visual theatre and live electronic music, that reflects on the meaning of being human today.

In Love The Sinner, we meet seven extraordinary characters as they struggle to comprehend their place in a world bladed with criticism and obsessed with self-betterment. They seek solace, or something else, in a pulsing, brimming Scottish city, as the water rises and the banks of the river threaten to burst.

Written and performed by performance poet Imogen Stirling, with live music from electronic artist Sonia Killmann, this collaboration with Vanishing Point was a huge hit with audiences and critics in 2023.
