It’s a Father’s Day

What is it about?

The play takes place on Father’s Day, which also happens to be a public holiday. Scores of people are crossing the Causeway, in their cars, to go to Malaysia. But who are they? Why are they leaving? What is their story? Should they be going? Is their journey a credible one? This is the tale of four fathers in four different cars, stuck in the inevitable traffic jam, on their way towards the Causeway. Each father has a different purpose, a different perspective, a different need. As the story pans out, we recognise that not all is as it seems and as we move towards the final conclusion, we leave the audience to decide their fate. To make the ultimate decision – whose need is greater, the fathers or the people inside the car and who should turn back and resolve their issues rather than make the choice to ‘escape’
