Prime Cut Productions introduces Father The Father

We can’t go out out right now, but thanks to the creativity of our local artists, we can still enjoy theatre on demand. 

Prime Cut Productions is delighted to announce it has collaborated with the MAC to co-produce and bring to the stage the world premiere of ‘Father the Father’.

Recorded live, this production see’s Prime Cut Productions and the MAC join forces for an unforgettable production. Telling a story that explores identity, secrecy, shame and legacy.

The debut play written by Gilly Campbell, is based on her own personal journey of growing up not knowing who her father was, only beginning her search for him 45 years later. Gilly’s mother who is from Downpatrick, became pregnant in 1973 and was not married; deciding to hide her pregnancy by moving away to England. Gilly knew nothing about her father, nor did her mother.  The profound story details Gilly’s thoughts, feelings and questions surrounding her father, someone who she had never met.


Father the Father will premiere online at 8pm on Thursday 8th April and available on demand until 11:59pm on Saturday 17 April. To book tickets, visit
