Our Fathers
Our Fathers

Written and performed by Rob Drummond & Nicholas Bone

On tour October-November 2017

Two atheist sons of clergymen are on a quest to find out how to disagree with someone you love.

"a dramatic prayer that honours where both men have come from even as eternal questions remain."
★★★★ The Herald


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 relationship. Rob Drummond, another son of a clergyman, is also looking for answers to a big question of his own.

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