Replacement Child

When faced with the danger of losing the child he loves, Oscar is forced to reveal the story behind her birth.  

Grace is tired of her father’s silence regarding the mother she never knew. The week after her 18th birthday she visits him and demands to know the circumstances leading up to her birth. Will Oscar risk losing his daughter by revealing a past shrouded in secrets and pain?

Jumping between past and present, The Replacement Child is a darkly humorous, visceral & compelling look at parenthood and grief and how one couple deals with loss- for better or worse. Starring Rupert Hill, Clare Cameron, Julia Haworth and Caroline Read. 

Directed by Martin Gibbons.

Including a Meet The Team Q and A on Tuesday the 20th (Opening Night) after the show with Martin Gibbons, writer Vittoria Caffola, the design team and cast.
