About this event
Cost Various
Following a stroke, seventy-four-year-old actor Mr Stone lies dying in a near-empty hospital ward. His two sons, Tony and Sam, together again after several years, try to reconcile their fractured family before it's too late. In doing so, they confront each other, their past, and the imminent loss of their father.

Nigel Williams’ play explores the complexities of adult fraternal bonds, when shared childhoods and personal histories work as hard to repel as they do to bind, and poses the question of whether the shared love of a dying father can overcome the damage done.

Williams’ is an Academy Award, Emmy and Golden Globe winner for TV drama Skallrigg and Elizabeth I, his latest TV series Catherine The Great due to be released later this staring Helen Mirren.

The production is directed by the New Works Associate of The Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse; Craig Gilbert and is staged in support of The Stroke Association.
