Our Fathers

About Our Fathers

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. The book charts the gulf which emerged between book-loving Edmund and his father - a preacher and renowned scientist - as Edmund realised 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.

A playful, personal collaboration between two distinctive theatre-makers which explores faith, family and conflict resolution in the 21st century.

Strong language throughout. Writers Rob Drummond and Nicholas Bone will be available pre-show to talk to members of the audience.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Our Fathers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
