Daddy – A Melodrama will play at London’s Almeida Theatre from 30 March – 9 April 2020.
I will be your father figure. Put your tiny hand in mine.
I will be your preacher teacher. Anything you have in mind.
A young black artist meets an older white art collector. A gospel choir emerges from an infinity pool. A mother stops at nothing to save her son’s soul. When it’s summer every day…when even is it?
In this Bel Air tale of love and family, intimacy is a commodity and the surreal gets real.
The cast of Daddy – A Melodrama includes Keisha Atwell, Rebecca Bernice Amissah, Jabari Braham, Katie Brayben, Alexander Hanson, David Jonsson, Ioanna Kimbook, John McCrea and Tanya Moodie.
Danya Taymor directs the UK premiere of Daddy, design by Matt Saunders, costumes by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting by Isabella Byrd, sound by Lee Kinney, movement by Anjali Mehra, musical direction by Tim Sutton, intimacy and fight direction Yarit Dor and casting by Amy Ball.
