BWW Review: FATHER'S SON, The Vaults Photo BWW Review: FATHER'S SON, The Vaults
by Jonathan Marshall - Feb 26, 2020

The bond between father and son can be incredibly strong but also incredibly fraught. Fathers might expect their sons to follow suit in terms of interests and ideas and sons perhaps feel pressured into living up to certain expectations that are thrust upon them. Lack of communication and male pride often interfere with being open and honest with one another and toxic behaviours can trickle down from one generation to the next. Writer James Morton explores this subject matter in his debut play premiering at The Vaults Festival. Casting a light on three generations, Father's Son examines how unresolved trauma and poor mental health ripple through a working class family in Stoke. Developed through the National Theatre's Toolkit programme and Soho Writers' Lab, the play was shortlisted for the Tony Craze Award in 2018.

Anima Theatre Company present Blue Departed, a show marketed as a re-imagination of Dante's Inferno. On paper, it sounds interesting but on stage it becomes a vague exploration of love and drug abuse.
