Rutherford And Son

Rutherford And Son Tickets London

In a piercing look at power and family, Roger Allam returns to the National Theatre for the first time in a decade to play the lead role in Rutherford And Son in this new production directed by Polly Findlay.

 
John Rutherford rules both his familiy and his factory with a will of iron, but as the furnaces burn relentlessly at the Glassworks, back at home his children are beginning to turn against him.

This astonishing play from Githa Sowerby was inspired by her own personal experience of growing up in a family-run factory in Gateshead, and was written in 1912, when it was rare to hear female voices on British stages. Now she claims her rightful place alongside Ibsen and Bernard Shaw with this searing depiction of gender, class and generational warfare.
