A family affected by domestic violence, Our Father is set in the aftermath of a day that changes the course of their lives forever. Sandra meets Gary who she thinks she can start a fresh new life with and have the family she never had growing up and repair the one broken by her daughters dad leaving. Sandra and her daughter Jessica recount memories of how a painful time in their life has brought them to where they are today.
A 10 minute extract was performed at Spotlight theatre Leicester Sq as part of the Actor Awareness Intergenerational scratch night.
The night will be that same extract, then a read through of the current full script.
‘The writing by Silver was unpredictable, the piece was described as ‘hard-hitting’, this was an understatement, I don’t think anyone in the audience was prepared for how intense the piece got’
‘When someone says that something was not easy to watch, it is often a bit of an exaggeration. However in the case of ‘Our Father’ it was not just difficult to watch, there were times I had to look away from the story unfolding before me’
