This week a new play about the social care system and the effects of war comes to the Nottingham Playhouse

FOG by Tash Fairbanks and Toby Wharton

FOG is a collaboration between a young male actor, Toby Wharton, and an established female writer and performer in her 60s, Tash Fairbanks. The play began as an audition piece for Toby's RADA application and the panel loved it so much, they wanted to see the rest of the play, so the pair set about writing it.

FOG by Tash Fairbanks and Toby WhartonAfter the untimely death of their mother, two children Gary (played by Toby Wharton himself) and Lou are put into care by their father, Cannon. When he returns from war ten years later he struggles to fit back into society and finds that his children have been damaged by his abandonment and by the care system.

After a successful run at London's Finborough Theatre last year, FOG is now touring the country supported by Nottingham based production company AGF Productions.
