An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting

Growing up Laurence never saw dads with cerebral palsy; which made him think he’d never be a parent himself. Besides, the only thing he’d ever managed to look after was a cactus, and even that died from dehydration. But then his future wife says he’d better be prepared for the fact she wants babies… which is a pretty strong opening line.
Putting the audience in the driver seat, the show gives a comic, brutally honest and charming account of what it’s really like to be a disabled parent. It both challenges and engages and has the potential to reach new audiences by exploring the commonality and differences in the experiences of disabled and non-disabled fathers. If Laurence is an irresponsible father then it is probably more to do with balancing his wife’s crutches on his son’s baby walker to make him look like a Dalek!

A hilarious, moving and interactive piece that asks some tough questions about society and the perceptions that we have on those who do not follow societal norms.
