In My Father's Words archiveIn an old wooden house by the shore of Lake Ontario in Canada, Louis battles with his elderly father, Don, whose decline into dementia is gradually robbing him of the ability to speak. Louis' professional success as a university teacher of Classics belies an emotional inarticulacy which matches his father's inability to express himself in words. And then into their lives comes Flora, the carer that Louis employs to look after Don. Flora is of Scottish heritage and a good listener, and she understands that the 'nonsense' which Don speaks is fragmented Gaelic, opening up an ocean of revelations and buried family history spanning the Atlantic. In My Father's Words is a beautiful play about identity - national and personal - and language, and the utter indivisibility between the two. World Premiere.
Performers Angus Peter Campbell, Lewis Howden, Muireann Kelly.
Author Justin Young. Company Dundee Rep Ensemble. Other Iain F MacLeod (Gaelic). Director Philip Howard. Lighting Grant Anderson. Design Fiona Watt. Music Jon Beales.
