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”.
“This will be the scariest show you see all year, as dangerously engaging (and genuinely funny) as it is brutally visceral. A+.”

“I laughed like a maniac, then wondered what I was laughing at; felt embarrassed (for myself, then for Adam), wondered if I’d been deceived, and, finally, came away with a host of questions about who we are as men, as adults, as parents, and filled with respect for Adam’s bravery and artistry.”
— Guillermo Verdecchia, curator Kick and Push Festival
