Fatherland is a vivid, urgent and deeply personal portrait of 21st-century England at the crossroads of past, present and future. Inspired by conversations with fathers and sons from the trio’s hometowns in the heart of the country, the show explores identity, nationality, masculinity – and what it means to belong in a world weighed down by the expectations of others.
Tender and tough, honest and true, Fatherland is a vital and necessary show about what we were, who we are and what we’d like to become.
