“Dad. Could you start? But, you know, like it’s you, just talking?”

It’s not easy putting on a play. It’s even harder when your dad is the lead character, he’s playing himself, and even though you’re the professional playwright and he’s the emergency surgeon, he keeps trying to rewrite your script. After Hurricane Katrina swept through her home town, Boo was determined to write a play about it. But she never imagined it would be this hard…

Playful, funny, and fiercely emotional, Killebrew’s acclaimed play explores what it means to be a father – or a daughter. Directed by Stella Powell-Jones, Deputy Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
