On Sunday 23rd October at Tobacco Factory Theatre in Bristol we are part of Prototype program: experiments in theatre. With other wonderful artists we will be sharing new materials from our new piece focusing on fatherhood.
On stage is Father. He is rushing to pick up his Daughter from school. Last night his Wife gave birth to their Son. His wife is Croatian and Father is not. He has to organise a celebration in honour of his Son’s birth. It usually involves lots of drinking. He doesn’t feel like doing it, but this is a tradition in Croatia when a male child is born. We hear interjections from Wife. We never see her, only hear her voice. We want to focus on the subject of fatherhood. Our aim is to investigate in what way we can orchestrate an exciting dramatic journey through the interruptions and instructions.
