David Sheppeard – Hard Graft

IMG_0715 SMALLER copy

I am making a show about my dad, but I don’t want him to see it.

In Hard Graft, David Sheppeard investigates how much can change between one generation of a family and the next and the lengths we go to bridge the divide. A performance about reluctant fathers and wayward sons set against the backdrop of the occasional mining disaster and the fading industrial landscapes of South Wales. Produced by Faith Dodkins. Outside eye and Mentor, Stacy Makishi.

“Sheppeard proves adept at taking the audience on an engaging and, at times, poignant journey into the intricacies and complexities of his relationship with his father.” A Younger Theatre

‘Hard Graft is as elegantly and cleverly structured as a Chris Goode show. It’s as thoughtful, as self-aware as… well… as a Chris Goode show is.’ Megan Vaughan

‘a very clever piece that is both self-referencing and universally true’ **** London Theatre
