Magnetic North in Co-Production with Traverse Theatre Company
Two atheist sons of clergymen are on a quest to find out how we disagree with someone we love. Our Fathers is a new play inspired by Father and Son, Edmund Gosse’s Victorian memoir about growing up in an evangelical Christian family and realising that he couldn’t share his father’s beliefs.
When his own clergyman father suggested he should read the book, Nicholas Bone assumed it would reveal something about their own relationship. As he combs the book for clues, Rob Drummond, another son of a clergyman, is also looking for answers to a big question of his own.
“Remarkable, multi-layered and utterly gripping.” **** The Guardian on Bullet Catch by Rob Drummond.
Rob Drummond and Nicholas Bone will be available pre-show to talk to members of the audience.
Our Fathers is directed by Nicholas Bone & Ian Cameron, performed by Rob Drummond and Nicholas Bone, designed by Karen Tennent with lighting design by Simon Wilkinson and music composed by Scott Twynholm.
