'Whose side are you on?’
Kevin and Michael, his son, meet for the first time in a decade.
Kevin's buzzing. They’re meeting in the spot where they celebrated Michael's birthdays when he was a child, the perfect place for getting their relationship back on track, back to the good old days. Michael’s worried. He’s reached out to his dad, but the shadow of the past is creeping in. Will it be another disappointment, another disaster?
Stumbling on a clearing in their local park during lockdown, a father and son had an idea for a play. They returned the next morning and recorded an improvised encounter on a phone. For the following three days they did the same, and within a week they had the script’s first draft.
A year on, Vocal Point present Furrow, an outdoor play about forgiveness, reconciliation, and the mistakes made by fathers and sons.
This hard-hitting new play will be staged at 4 open-air locations throughout Wandsworth.
Vocal Point brings theatre and culture into unconventional spaces. As well as staging plays, they run drama workshops, art exploration classes, and reading and creative writing groups for the homeless and vulnerable.
Mooring (Totally Thames 2016) was Abraham and Simon Parker's first collaboration.
