I'm going to be very transparent with you here, what's going to happen very soon is that we, ie: you and me, together, we are going to recreate my dad's funeral. Now don't worry, it'll be funny. I promise.
Full of pathos. And bathos. And gallows humour.
My Dad, Dave, died on 5 November 2015 of complications related to dementia. It was f*cking awful. But the eulogy I gave was brilliant. It deserves a bigger crowd.
My way to see if from the molten wreckage of dementia some humanity, art and wonder can be salvaged. I f*cking hope so.
Directed by Angharad Jones, in her first production as New Perspectives' Artistic Director, join Daniel Hoffman-Gill as family and friends to experience the legendary life and times of Dave through a tour-de-force autobiographical performance, part tribute, part stand-up and occasional lip-syncing.
