The Good Father

Thursday March 22ndGlenamaddy Players (Confined)

“The Good Father” by Christian O’Reilly

The Good Father’ is a warm, tender and funny love story about two people from different social backgrounds. Jane, a lawyer, and Tim, a painter, meet at a New Year’s Eve party and reluctantly attempt a relationship after she becomes pregnant. Sarcastic, resentful and still trying to please her parents, Jane would prefer to go it alone but Tim’s open-heated honesty and persistence gradually wears her down. Estranged from his own father he is desperate to realise a dream he thought beyond him, to be a good father. As resistance turns to love, they begin to glimpse a bright future together, but Jane carries a secret thatthreatens to tear them apart.
