Fatherland, co-created by Scott Graham, Karl Hyde and Simon Stephens, opened last night (Thursday 31 May 2018) at the Lyric Hammersmith and a selection of first look production images have been made available. Tickets.

This bold new production, by Scott Graham, Karl Hyde and Simon Stephens, focusing on contemporary fatherhood in all its complexities and contradictions, premiered at the Royal Exchange Theatre as part of Manchester International Festival. Fatherland will open in May at the Lyric Hammersmith and will be a part of the 2018 LIFT festival.

This intensely physical production is performed by a 13-strong cast who will be joined by the Chorus of Others, a cacophony of voices, specially formed as part of Fatherland, for the production at the Lyric. Fatherland features exclusive songs and music written by Karl Hyde (Underworld) and Matthew Herbert.

Inspired by conversations with fathers and sons from Corby, Kidderminster and Stockport, the three co-creators’ hometowns, Fatherland explores identity, nationality and masculinity. In a vivid and deeply personal portrait of 21st-century England at the crossroads of past, present and future, Fatherland is a show about what we were, who we are and what we try to be.
