‘Shall we have a real conversation? I am ready to stop pretending if you are.’

Peace didn’t know what she needed when her father died. Then she found Bolu, her half-brother from Nigeria she didn’t know existed. Despite her mother’s concerns and encouraged by her partner, Peace invites Bolu to England. Filled with grief and a thousand questions, his arrival feels like something clicking into place.

But questions about this stranger’s intentions and his mysterious past hang heavy in the air. Desperate to keep her fractured family – and herself – together, Peace must face the fact that the answers she desperately seeks might just lead to everything falling apart.

My Father’s Fable is a gripping story of grief, belonging, and a family on the edge from Alfred Fagon Award winner Faith Omole. It is premiered at the Bush Theatre, London, in June 2024.
