The Southbury Child
Book now from £15.00
Raffish, urbane and frequently drunk, David Highland has kept a grip on his remote coastal parish through a combination of disordered charm and high-handed determination.
But when his faith impels him to take a hard line with a bereaved parishioner, he finds himself dangerously isolated from public opinion. As his own family begins to fracture and his marriage falls apart, David must face a future that threatens to extinguish not only his position in the town, but everything he stands for.
Stephen Beresford’s darkly comic new play is an exploration of family and community, the savage divisions of contemporary society and the rituals that punctuate our lives.
Three-time Olivier winning, Alex Jennings makes his first appearance at The Bridge to lead this eagerly awaited return to the stage by a writer whose work includes The Last of the Haussmans at the National Theatre and the BAFTA-winning Pride.
