The highly acclaimed Northern Broadsides brings Githa Sowerby’s classic Edwardian drama set in the north of England to the London stage under the direction of renowned theatre director Jonathan Miller.
Set in 1912 and relocated to industrial Yorkshire, Rutherford & Son tells the story of iron-fisted John Rutherford as he battles the scheming rebellion of his eldest son and his daughter’s scandalous love-affair, while fighting to prevent the legacy of the family glassworks from shattering.
Tackling timeless issues of family dynamics both at home and in business, this remarkable drama is as relevant today as when it was first performed.
Rutherford & Sons is directed by Jonathan Miller, one of the world’s leading opera and theatre directors, and stars Northern Broadsides’ Artistic Director Barrie Rutter.
