Fountain Theatre’s hit play ‘Fatherland’ earns second extension

Fountain Theatres hit play Fatherland
earns second extension through July 21


Last call: The Fountain Theatre has announced the second extension of its world premiere hit play, Fatherland. Audiences have been mesmerized since February by the riveting true story of the 19-year-old son who testified against his father in federal court after informing the FBI of his dad’s involvement in the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol. Following a three-week hiatus, the production will return for an additional five weeks of performances from June 22 through July 21. Fast-moving, powerful, and theatrical, Fatherland erupts verbatim from official court transcripts, case evidence, and public statements.
