A unique package with Liverpool Playhouse, including 2 tickets, bed and breakfast from £139 per couple.
Your father is a control freak. The family business is a millstone round your neck. Home feels like a prison. And yet you have dreams.
This powerful drama written and set in the North of England, 1912, is an unflinching portrayal of an industrial Edwardian family on the brink of collapse. John Rutherford is a tyrannical patriarch, blind to the hopes and feelings of his family.
The success of the family-owned glassworks, Rutherford and Son, takes precedence over everything… even happiness. In a household run on fear cracks begin to appear. The emotional pitch builds up like a pressure cooker. The dramatic voltage intensifies as Rutherford’s absolute authority is challenged and a catastrophic family mutiny begins to unfold, threatening to destroy his world and his factory. “One of the top one hundred plays of the century.” National Theatre poll.
Package available 23rd, 24th and 25th May.
