If you pinned me against a wall, I’d probably admit to being a liberal.

Of course, pinning me against a wall is exactly what I’d expect from someone like you.

A show about the gulfs we can’t talk across, and about the way we choose to see only the evidence that proves we’re right.

With an election looming, and new voices appearing in mainstream UK politics, Chris Thorpe and The TEAM Artistic Director Rachel Chavkin examine the phenomenon of confirmation bias through an honourable dialogue, real and imagined, with political extremism. To find out how we believe what we believe, and how we can end up so far apart.

“Rachel Chavkin’s fast-moving, kinetic production offers us an absolutely compelling performance from a man who is fast becoming one of the most powerful performers in the UK.”
The Scotsman ★★★★

“Thorpe and director Rachel Chavkin energetically take a liberal Fringe audience to the edge of the abyss of belief and hang them over the side in a conversation for out times.”
The Independent ★★★★

Confirmation is a show that lets nobody off the hook: not us, and definitely not Thorpe.”
The Guardian★★★★
