Our Fathers is based on Father & Son, the poet Edmund Gosse’s memoir of his upbringing in a strict, evangelical Plymouth Brethren family. Tightly bound to his father by the early death of his mother and his father’s burning sense of Edmund’s destiny as a great preacher, Gosse came to a gradual realisation of his own sense of self, culminating in his rejection of religion.
Rob Drummond and Nicholas Bone will perform in their own adaptation of the book. Both were brought up in religious households and had fathers who were clergymen, so have a very personal take on this story.
The play will premiere at the Traverse Theatre in October 2017 before touring.
A co-production with Traverse Theatre Company
Development supported by Tron Theatre
