About: Rutherford & Son

This powerful drama, set in the North of England in 1912, is an unflinching portrayal of an Edwardian industrial family on the brink of collapse and a tyrannical patriarch, Rutherford, blind to their feelings. The success of the family-owned glassworks takes precedence over everything… even his children’s happiness.

Ranked one of the Top 100 Plays of the Century, there are few dramas as deeply human and immediately rewarding as this. Northern Broadsides, directed for the first time by renowned director Jonathan Miller, brings its trademark gritty performance style to this astonishing play.

A play by Northern Broadsides.
