Growing up gay in a small town in France, Edouard endured the violence and homophobia of his alcoholic, right-wing father, who has suffered an accident in the workplace which left him bed-bound and on morphine to ease the pain. Edouard confronts his father, who can hardly walk or breathe. Uncovering a startling connection between political decisions and his father’s broken body, Edouard’s anger turns to compassion, as his father’s violence appears to be the result of years of social brutality. The play is based on the book by Edouard Louis, who exposes how the consequences of neo-liberal ‘reforms’ inflicted on the lives of workers are lived-out in their own bodies.
