The Father Tickets

Trafalgar Studios 2London

An uneasy stand-off exists between the Captain and his wife, Laura. But, a disagreement over the future of their daughter, Bertha, triggers an all-out war.

Laura will stop at nothing to gain control of her daughter’s future. When she suggests to the Captain that he may not actually be the girl’s father, she sets a chain of events in motion that cannot be stopped.

It is a battle of the minds, but the real question is - is it a battle either party can win?

Written by August Strindberg, in a version by Laurie Slade.  Directed by Abbey Wrigh
