Gary and Lou were put into care as young children by their soldier father, Cannon, following the untimely death of their mother. Ten years later, Cannon returns, expecting to reassemble his family around him. And nothing could prepare him for the damage that abandonment and an inadequate care system has wreaked on his kids. He desperately tries to repair what has been broken, but is it all too little too late?
FOG was written by Toby Wharton and Tash Fairbanks. It premiered to critical acclaim at The Finborough Theatre in 2012 and subsequently went on a UK tour. The play was supported by the Arts Council England and published by Methuen Drama.
“Jangles your nerves and twists your heart. Bubbles with unpredictable comic life. I hope to see and hear a lot more from author/actor Toby Wharton” The Independent
“Moments pregnant with anguished, unspoken hurt and hatred are captured perfectly with heavy exchanges that Pinter could not have scripted better. It is pervasive, perverse and fantastically compelling. A master class in honest realism” What’s onstage.com
