‘His Father’s Son’ centres around the story of Tyler (played by Jack Gregory), over 30 years of his life. The piece begins when Tyler is 15 years old, struggling with difficulties in his home life and fitting in at school. The relationship he has with his father (Josh Blitz) has a detrimental impact on his future, and we explore how without the right guidance and care, history can repeat itself.

JSA Theatre is a group of five second year students studying drama at Exeter University. They are passionate about creating work for communities that expresses prevalent topical issues that they believe needs to be addressed within our society. Their current piece of work (‘His Father’s Son’) discusses the impact of divorce, addresses abusive behaviour and societal pressures around being a man.

JSA Theatre is made up of Jack Gregory, Josh Blitz, Scarlett Gladstone, Ally Bradly and Alex Flood (Director).

After the performance, there will be a short Q&A open discussion led by the company about any of the themes in the play, devising techniques, or questions to JSA Theatre as a small developing company.
