Part performance poetry, part monologue by award-winning writer John Hamilton May. Originally developed at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds, the piece explores identity and fragility, parenthood and pomegranates. Yes, pomegranates.

This twenty-minute piece brings together a two-decade timeline of one man’s struggle with another: his father. Through lyrical and non-linear storytelling, May explores the effect of a presence made absent and the paradoxical desire for and fear of father-son relationships.

John’s work has been seen across the UK and in the United States. He is currently a Soho and Tricycle Young Writer.
