Is it normal to be ashamed of loving?
Who Killed My Father is a furious indictment of the political elite, and a son’s declaration of love. This UK premiere is adapted and directed by the award-winning Ivo van Hove from the anger-soaked, internationally acclaimed book by Édouard Louis.
This is a rare opportunity to see Hans Kesting perform the production in English.
Who Killed My Father is generously supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Who Killed My Father runs until 24 September 2022 at the Young Vic theatre, London.
What is Who Killed My Father about?
Returning home to the small, conservative town in the north of France where he grew up as a gay teenager, a son finds his dying father virtually unrecognisable from years of alcoholism, social deprivation and grueling manual labour. He starts to wonder: who’s responsible?
