Is confession good for the soul?

Invisible Ink has been collecting true stories of the terrible things we do.

From lying to your boss to breaking your mum’s heart and everywhere in between the show explores the darker side of human nature. But we’re not here to judge – honest!

Inspired by personal stories collected over 2 years, we invite you to our public confessional to revel in the funny, awkward and poignant world of people’s deepest secrets.

If you too feel like unburdening yourself, there will be a “confession booth” in the foyer before and after the show.

Invisible Ink thanks all the generous contributors who have shared with us so far. All names have been changed to protect the innocent … and not so innocent.

The Terrible Things I’ve Done follows Invisible Ink’s sell-out adaptation of Angela Carter’s The Magic Toyshop.

“An hour and a half of elicit gothic sexuality – every bit as dark as promised.”      British Theatre Guide, The Magic Toyshop

Invisible Ink is made up of Bruntwood prize winner  Alan Harris (whose latest show is being produced by Paines Plough in the Roundabout at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival) and Sita Calvert-Ennals who’s recent directing credits include puppet opera Tarrare the Freak which will tour nationally.

This is a Bristol Old Vic Ferment commission and a collaboration between Invisible Ink, Chapter Arts Centre, The University of South Wales, Theatr Iolo and is funded by the Arts Council of Wales.

A yw cyffesu yn dda i’r enaid?

Mae Invisible Ink wedi bod yn casglu straeon gwir am y pethau ofnadwy yr ydym yn eu gwneud.

O ddweud celwyddau wrth y bòs i dorri calon eich mam a phob dim yn y canol, mae’r sioe yn archwilio ochr dywyllach y natur ddynol. Ond dydyn ni ddim yma i’ch beirniadu – wir nawr!

Wedi’i hysbrydoli gan straeon personol a gasglwyd dros 2 flynedd, rydym yn eich gwahodd i’r sesiwn gyffesu gyhoeddus i fwynhau byd doniol, lletchwith ac ingol cyfrinachau dyfnaf pobl.

Os ydych yn teimlo fel cael gwared ar eich beichiau, bydd “bwth cyffesu” yn y cyntedd cyn ac ar ôl y sioe.

Mae Invisible Ink yn diolch i’r holl gyfranwyr hael sydd wedi rhannu gyda ni hyd yn hyn. Mae’r holl enwau wedi’u newid i ddiogelu’r diniwed…a’r rhai llai diniwed.
