Daddy Dear is a performance that explores the trauma children have from being raised in abusive families. If one is raised by an alcoholic does one become alcoholic? How should children be treated, and punished? Should they be punished? Does abuse lead to abuse? Can the cycle be broken? Is a child worth respect? These questions, and many more, will be answered in the performance.
Daddy Dear provokes thoughts one might have never had, and address uncomfortable questions. It stirs up memories that most of us have buried deep within. Every performance has a different beginning, and a different ending, because just like the mind of an alcoholic it is forever unstable.
