Fatherland archiveThe 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. World Premiere. FATHERLAND is a bold new theatre show created by Scott Graham from Frantic Assembly, Underworld's Karl Hyde and playwright Simon Stephens, focusing on contemporary fatherhood in all its complexities and contradictions. Inspired by conversations with fathers and sons from the trio's home towns in the heart of the country, FATHERLAND is a survey of life in England's towns today. The show will transform the familiar spaces of Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre, with a cast of 13 men and a remarkable, all-embracing musical score by Karl Hyde and Matthew Herbert.
