Daughter at Battersea Arts Centre

Produced by The Theatre Centre in association with Glynis Henderson Productions

Presented by Battersea Arts Centre

Performed by Adam Lazarus and directed by Ann-Marie Kerr, Daughter became one of the most talked-about shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018. This powerhouse performance pulls no punches as it confronts toxic masculinity head-on.

“Powerful and unsettling. Keeps pushing and pushing at the line as if daring us to draw it”
★★★★ Lyn Gardner, The Independent

“Magnetic. The audience are unsure whether to give a standing ovation or stage a walk-out”
★★★★ Kate Wyver, The Guardian

“Electrifying. A timely portrait of everyday misogyny hiding in plain sight.”
★★★★ Neil Cooper, The Herald

Adam Lazarus plays The Father in this darkly satirical piece distilled into the figure of a very funny, engaging and deeply troubled man.

Through his powerful account of fatherhood, violence and love, we come to recognize the ingrained misogyny we see everywhere — within society, within our communities, and perhaps, for some of us, within ourselves.

Daughter aims to open-up a conversation. Every performance is followed by a discussion with the show’s producer, The Theatre Centre’s Artistic Director Aislinn Rose.
