“I love you just the way you are.” – Where does this self-understanding of accepting each other unconditionally exist? Patrik Lazić’s production is about a key moment in the relationship between parents and their adult homosexual son. In a play with fiction and reality, Lazić shares with the audience the process of an emancipation: full of comedy, irony, hurts, fears and missed opportunities. “OUR SON” premiered in 2022 as part of Euro Pride at the Belgrade production house Heartefact.

Patrik Lazić, b. 1995, graduate in Directing from the Theatre Department of the University of Arts in Belgrade, first staged our son at the Belgrade producing house Heartefact, a play strongly influenced by his own biography. The play is about a key moment in the relationship between parents and their adult, homosexual son. In a delicate and intimate game with fiction and reality, Lazić shares the process of an emancipation with the audience. It’s a situation that everyone somehow knows, so similar and yet so different: full of comedy, irony, jokes, full of hurt, fears, missed chances, full of perplexity and unexpected insights.
