THE LAST CONFESSION OF ALEXANDER PEARCE follows the final days of Irish convict Alexander Pearce's life as he awaits execution. The year is 1824 and the British penal colony of Van Dieman's Land is little more than a living hell. Chained to a wall in the darkness of a cell under Hobart Goal, Pearce is visited by Father Connolly, the parish priest of the fledging colony and a fellow Irishman. THE LAST CONFESSION OF ALEXANDER PEARCE will draw a visceral and compelling picture of a hell on earth and tell how one man endured the unimaginable by doing the unthinkable.
