If you’re in need of a good giggle and a night away from the kids, then this is a brilliant performance! Dadism is completely relatable, and I believe everyone can see a part of themselves in this timeless comedy!
It is a piece of comedy theatre that explores situations that men go through when becoming a father… and it is absolutely hilarious. No matter who you are, you will have found yourself in a similar situation to ‘Dad’ at one time or another, and this comedy helps you see the funny side of it all! This script certainly does fly the flag for all the dads out there, who sometimes get forgotten!
Jason Kavan who plays the role of Dad is a brilliant story teller. I have so much respect for anyone who is cast in a one man show, as you really have to use your imagination to take your audience on a journey. Without a doubt, Jason did this. The audience members were treated as friends, and he soon built up personal relationships with certain individuals within the audience. One of my favourite elements of this piece, is the audience interaction. No two nights will be the same, as it has so much heart and spontaneity. The running themes and in-jokes between certain individuals are what make this such a special production.
The appropriate set and lighting added to the warmth of this piece, and the direction and script were creative. Director Alison Chadwick brought to life this text, and made it visually captivating. The words of the script by Anjali Mya Chadha are what made this such a heartfelt and relatable piece.
In conclusion, this show speaks volumes and is effortlessly funny. It has character and charm like no other and I urge you all to go and see it. I wish the cast and crew the best of success and hope that this returns for a longer run at some point in the near future!
3rd / 4th March 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
