Frankland and Sons (Tom and John Frankland Productions)

Tom and John Frankland Productions
A true story created by three generations of the same family about parents, children and falling in love. When theatre-maker Tom Frankland’s aunt died in 2006, he and his father inherited suitcases containing letters written by his grandparents across twenty-five years. They reveal the astonishing life and love of a couple living through two world wars and a recession. As an excuse to spend time together, Tom suggested they create a performance inspired by the letters. In creating their debut performance together, father and son uncovered more than they bargained for.
Created and performed by double Fringe First award winner Tom and his dad, John Frankland, and directed by Fringe First award winner Jamie Wood. Frankland & Sons is a personal performance that contains sketches, readings and conversation and maps a true story of fathers and sons against the events of the last hundred years.
Drawing on Tom & John’s Pythonesque sense of humour, the show is playful, moving and surprising; a tale of love won, love lost, and wholly inappropriate girlfriends.
