Prime Cut Productions has announced a new collaboration with the MAC to co-produce and bring to the stage the world premiere of Father the Father, a debut play by Gilly Campbell, exploring identity, secrecy, shame and legacy.
It is 1973 and Daughter is born to an unwed single mother from Downpatrick, but who was her father? 45 years later she begins the journey to find out and discovers that the Derry man is not at all what she expected. Father the Father was born out of Gilly Campbell’s need for catharsis in documenting her thoughts, feelings and questions surrounding the search and discovery of her father after 45 years of not knowing who he was, never mind meeting him.
Recorded live, Father the Father, a one-woman show starring Abigail McGibbon, premieres online at 8pm on Thursday 8th April and is available on demand until 11:59pm on Saturday 17 April.
