David Baddiel’s highly acclaimed, Olivier Nominated one man show ‘My Family: Not The Sitcom’ has now been announced for a national tour, that arrives at The Hexagon on Sunday 29 April 2018.
Following a sold out run at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and two critically-acclaimed West End runs, DAVID BADDIEL takes his Olivier-nominated one-man show to theatres nationwide.
My Family: Not the Sitcom is a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf, and gay cats. A massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late sex-mad mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. Come and be offended on David’s behalf!
When family members die, or are lost to dementia, all we tend to say about them is that they were wonderful. But if that is all you can say about them, you may as well say nothing: to truly remember our loved ones, you have to call up their weirdnesses, their madnesses, their flaws.
Because the dead, despite what we may think, are not angels.
