‘Confessions of Honour’ is a superbly crafted, witty and very moving new play, written and directed by Gerry Hinks, which is set in Whittington Barracks, Near Lichfield and tells the story of Frederick Salisbury V.C. who, on a special celebratory day, is to give his medal to the regiment in which he served in WW2. On this very special day, a German, Herr Wolfgang Meissler also attends and it is very soon clear that there is an ulterior motive to his presence! Did Frederick actually do what he thought he did to win his medal? Why is Herr Meissler so interested in his story? And what revelations will come out when the two men finally open up old wounds and reveal the truth? This touchingly emotive and very funny play works on many levels and all that have seen it have left feeling uplifted and extremely moved as its story twists and turns and leaves the audience wanting to know more!
