Summary:Winner of a Scotsman Fringe First Award 2014. If you pinned me against a wall and put a gun to my head, I'd probably admit to being a liberal. Actually if you pinned me against a wall and put a gun to my head, I'd probably admit to being whatever you wanted me to be. And of course, putting a gun to my head is exactly what I'd expect from someone like you. Confirmation is a show about the gulf between beliefs that we can't talk across. About our knee-jerk dismissal of the opposing viewpoint. About the echo chamberof agreement and validation we live in. About the way we choose only to see the evidence that proves we're right. A new solo show from a multi Fringe First winning team: written and performed by Chris Thorpe (Unlimited Theatre, Third Angel), developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin (The TEAM).
