Every Sinner Has a Future

Tuesday 3 August 2021

Every Sinner has a Future’ is a one-man show written and performed by Frank Skully about his lived experiences of the criminal justice system. Directed by Nathanael Campbell and Produced by Sarah Jordan Verghese.

From paperboy to prison, Frank Skully’s life is a rollercoaster of humour and coincidences. The piece questions preconceptions of a criminal and whether it is nurture or nature that dictates Frank’s destiny. The criminal justice system should be a place to rehabilitate, instead, it has become a system that churns out more criminals than it lures in.

Frank Skully has worked for Synergy Theatre as an actor, workshop facilitator and education coordinator over a decade. He recently wrote ‘Food and Peace’ which won first place in a writing competition by SOHO Theatre.
