Both hysterical and disturbing, Daughter plays in the liminal space between autobiography and fiction.
It is a darkly satirical piece about a father stuck in a moment of confusion—raised in patriarchy, confronting his new identity as a patriarch/father, and not knowing how to operate in the world. Daughter is a true thought disrupter that will leave you charged and ready to talk. This provocative one-man show about toxic masculinity is written by Canada’s Bouffon-King Adam Lazarus and co-created with Ann-Marie Kerr, Melissa D’Agostino and Jiv Parasram.
Daughter interrogates questions of culpability and complicity in our society. It examines the subtle and not so subtle ways we condone and encourage misogyny; “boys will be boys”.
Welcome to Daughter: a show that exposes the hypocrisies and complexities of the human experience.

“Powerful and unsettling.
Keeps pushing and pushing at the line as if daring us to draw it”
“Magnetic. The audience are unsure whether to give a standing ovation or stage a walk-out”
“Electrifying. A timely portrait of everyday misogyny hiding in plain sight.”
