Manchester International Festival announces casting for ‘Fatherland’ at the Royal Exchange Theatre

Full casting has today been announced for Scott Graham, Karl Hyde and Simon Stephens’ Fatherland, which receives its world premiere at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, as part of the Manchester International Festival, running from 1 July to 22 July, 2017.

The full cast includes Joseph Alessi, Luke Brown, Matt Cross, Bryan Dick, Emun Elliott, Ankit Giri, Nick Holder, David Judge, Neil McCaul, Tachia Newell, Ferdy Roberts, Luke Rigg and Deka Walmsley. Each night the cast will be joined by the Chorus of Others, a cacophony of Mancunian voices, formed as part of Fatherland.



Inspired by conversations with fathers and sons from the three co-authors’ hometowns across England: Corby, Kidderminster and Stockport, Fatherland explores identity, nationality and masculinity.

In a vivid and deeply personal portrait of 21st-century England at the crossroads of past, present and future, Fatherland is a show about what we were, who we are and what we try to be.



Fatherland is commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival, Frantic Assembly, the Royal Exchange Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith and LIFT, and supported by PRS for Music Foundation.
