Life is rewriting itself before a family's eyes; how can they fight to recover the missing pieces.
The topic is a controversial one - child sexual abuse. This is a unique angle on the effects on those surrounding the guilty. This play shows how guilt explodes off the accused, settling upon all those who surround him. The most shocking question this play deals with is what does it mean to be a father? It is provoking and upsetting. You will most likely leave deep in thought.
What if you went to sleep and when you woke up, your father was a different man? This is the reality of the family in Our Father. Written and produced by Lucy Holz Our Father is a thought-provoking narrative that takes you into the confusion of the family of an accused man. Can they cling to the sweetness of their memories as they are muddied before their eyes? Are they even allowed to?
Lucy's work expresses with fearlessness. The writing and production present a stark realism that the polished performances of the actors bring to life. The lighting allows for a seamless transition as characters diminish from scene to great effect. As characters are left to themselves, their isolation and loneliness in processing the ramifications of the situation stings through the silence.
Feral Cat Theatre is a Melbourne University Theatre Group whose intention is to produce works of Scrappy and Tough Theatre. This play certainly fits the bill holding nothing back and leaving worlds left unsaid and to be said.
