25 May – 23 June:
Fatherland is a look at modern fatherhood – a mass of contradictions and complexities, highlighted in this ambitious show at the Lyric in Hammersmith, co-created by Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time). A 13-strong cast and a chorus of voices performs a collage of words, movement and music. Inspired by conversations with fathers and sons, looking at the past, present and future, the performers explore masculinity and identity and what it means to be weighed down the by expectations of others. Tender, tough and honest.
