News   Jonathan Miller's Production of Rutherford & Son to Transfer to London's St. James Theatre
 
The recent Northern Broadsides touring production of Githa Sowerby's classic play Rutherford & Son is to get a London run, beginning performances at the St. James Theatre June 4 prior to an official opening June 5, for a run through June 29. 



Directed by Jonathan Miller and starring the company's artistic director Barrie Rutter in the role of John Rutherford, the production also features Nicholas Shaw, Andrew Grose, Sara Poyzer, Kate Anthony, Catherine Kinsella and Richard Standing. Set in 1912 and relocated to industrial Yorkshire, Rutherford & Son tells the story of iron-fisted John Rutherford as he battles the scheming rebellion of his eldest son and his daughter's scandalous love-affair, while fighting to prevent the legacy of the family glassworks from shattering.

In a press statement, Miller commented, "It's such great news that Rutherford & Son will transfer to the St. James Theatre. As soon as I read the play, I was attracted to its straight forward dramatic simplicity and the fact that it seemed unexpectedly relevant. It is an incredibly important piece of theatre."
