A Masterclass in Characterization

One of Redhill's greatest strengths lies in his ability to create characters that are both relatable and deeply flawed. From Stella's haunting vulnerability to the enigmatic charm of Ava, each character possesses a unique voice that resonates with readers long after the final page is turned. It is through the intricacy of these characters that Redhill brings the story to life, immersing readers in a world where no one is entirely good or bad.

"Redhill's characters are a testament to the complexity of the human condition. They mirror the conflicts within our own lives, prompting introspection and empathy." - The Literary Review

The Language of Beauty

Redhill's prose is a thing of beauty. Every sentence is meticulously crafted, showcasing the author's deep appreciation for the power of language. Through vivid imagery and lyrical metaphors, he paints a vivid picture of both the physical and emotional landscapes in which his characters reside.

His ability to evoke sensations and emotions through words alone is nothing short of remarkable. The reader is invited to experience the palpable tension, the overwhelming grief, and the quiet moments of solace that punctuate the narrative. It is a testament to Redhill's skill as a wordsmith that the story feels so vivid and alive.

Exploring Deeper Themes

Beyond the thrilling plot and lyrical prose, Goodness delves into profound themes that resonate with readers on a deeper level. Redhill tackles the nature of good and evil, the power of forgiveness, and the often blurred lines between them. He forces us to confront the dark aspects of our own humanity, challenging preconceived notions and the simplistic ideas of moral absolutes.

But it is not just the philosophical musings that make Goodness so captivating. Redhill also adeptly addresses social issues such as mental health, gender dynamics, and the impact of trauma. It is a testament to his ability as a writer to seamlessly weave these threads into a compelling narrative, creating a work that is both thought-provoking and emotionally charged.

A Journey Worth Taking

As readers immerse themselves in Goodness, they are taken on a captivating journey that challenges their beliefs and engrosses their minds. It is a testament to Michael Redhill's unparalleled talent that his novel continues to captivate and resonate with readers, long after the final page is turned. Goodness is a rare gem in the literary world, and its author stands among the greats.

This remarkable autobiographical play by the award-winning author of Building Jerusalem and Martin Sloane, is a Russian-doll-like play: concentric stories enveloping each other. A writer is told, in confidence, a terrible tale of murder and injustice and he promises never to repeat the story. Goodness is the writer breaking his word.

Recently divorced, Michael Redhill goes to Poland to get away frm his life and to do some research on the Holocaust. Thwarted by witnesses unwilling to talk, he returns home via England, but in London is introduced to someone who can tell him a 'real' story of evil. Through this reluctant witness, Redhill learns of a genocide. He encounters, through the memory of the storyteller, an alleged war criminal, about to be put on trial. But this is an old man with Alzheimer's who can no longer remember the time his crimes were allegedly committed. Has his guilt dissolved with his memory? Could he be pretending to be ill in order to escape punishment? The witness conjures for Redhill the war criminal's passionate and beautiful daughter, who will defend her father at all costs. There is also the prosecuting attorney, who has much in common with the old man whose destruction he seeks. As well as an uncomfortable attraction to his daughter. Each is drawn to the other. All is witnessed by a female prison guard – the one who tells the playwright, years later, what really happened in the quest to give a nation some closure. Everyone's story is compelling, and the ending is as unexpected as it is shocking.

Who do we believe? A prison guard still wounded by history? A writer suffering from heartache? A dying war criminal? What is our responsibility? Who does memory serve? Did the past really happen? And if it did, who has a claim on it?

Goodness is a play about what happens in the gaps between experiencing, telling and hearing.
