Our Fathers

World Premiere
Untitled design (86)

Two atheist sons of clergymen are on a quest to find out how we disagree with someone we love.

Our Fathers is inspired by Father and Son, Edmund Gosse’s Victorian memoir about growing up in a Christian family. The book charts the gulf between Edmund and his father - a preacher and renowned scientist - as Edmund realises he didn't share his father’s beliefs.

When his own clergyman father suggested he should read the book, Nicholas Bone assumed it would reveal something about their own relationship. Rob Drummond, another son of a clergyman, is also looking for answers to a big question of his own.
