About the event

Fatherland is a vivid, urgent and deeply personal portrait of 21st-century England at the crossroads of past, present and future. Created by Frantic Assembly’s Scott Graham, Karl Hyde from Underworld and playwright Simon Stephens (Punk Rock, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), this daring collage of words, music and movement is animated by a 13-strong cast and a multitude of voices.

Inspired by conversations with fathers and sons from the trio’s home towns 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.

Fatherland premiered at Manchester International Festival in 2017 at the Royal Exchange Theatre.
