A fabulously life-affirming show  [The Scotsman]

★★★★★ The Scotsman | ★★★★ The Herald


This is a picture of me and my Dad. You can probably tell that this was taken in the 1980’s which means that he was in his late twenties and I was new to the world. At this point we didn’t know each other very well and didn’t really know what to expect. Years later we have a bit more experience and a whole new set of questions…

A show about fathers and daughters that stems from the real life experience of Jess Thorpe and Tim Thorpe. 

First performed in September 2009 at The Arches as part of the Arches Live! Festival, Glasgow. Featured as part of the Forest Fringe – Central School of Speech and Drama, London in December 2009 and in August 2010 as part of the Forest Fringe Festival, Edinburgh.
