Surrogate presents Who Killed My Father, based on the book by Édouard Louis, translated by Lorin Stein and adapted and directed for stage by Nora Wardell.
Growing up gay in a small town in France, Édouard endured the violence and homophobia of his alcoholic, right-wing father, a factory worker.
In 2000, his father suffered an accident which left him bed-bound and on morphine for the pain. Now, Édouard confronts his father, uncovering a startling connection between political decisions and his father’s broken body.
Who Killed My Father is an intimate declaration of love from son to father and a defiant call for social justice.
