Join us on an unforgettable journey into the heart of modern fatherhood.

Fatherhood is a captivating exploration of the complexities of being a 21st-century dad, especially when your son’s heritage is a blend of South Indian, Turkish, and Austrian roots.

Embark on a multicultural adventure as three unique stories of fatherhood are woven together, sprinkled with humour and sensitivity, told through the compelling art of physical theatre and multilingual dialogue.

Immerse yourself in the relatable, everyday experiences that connect us all, transcending continents and generations from the 1960s to the present day. Fatherhood shines a spotlight on the challenges of modern parenting and the rich tapestry of the migrant experience with intelligence, humanity, and compassion.

What makes this show unique? Fatherhood proudly features a deaf character who communicates using BSL and his unique home language, showcasing the power of connection between the deaf and hearing worlds. The performance also includes a medley of spoken languages, including Turkish, Malayalam, Tamil, and German, creating a true celebration of linguistic diversity.

Every performance includes creative, integrated captions, ensuring everyone can follow the story, translating spoken and signed languages and describing sounds for deaf and hard of hearing audience members. The sound design takes you into the world of the deaf character, offering a unique auditory experience.

Don’t miss this opportunity to witness a one-of-a-kind theatrical exploration of fatherhood.
