My Dad Boris

Ages 14+ | Reason To Create
Hi I just need you all to know that my Dad is the most important man in the country* (allegedly). In this performance I will show you all of the things that nobody knew about my dad.
Just because he *seems* to be an imperfect, lying, corrupt man who managed to climb the greasy pole purely because of wealth and family connections… It doesn’t mean he IS… does it?
NB. My stage manager pulled out at last minute and now I’m stuck with a mate of my Dad’s to run the show sorry.
*EDITOR: Due to ongoing parliamentary investigations, this information may be out of date by the time of this performance. If so, this sentence should read “My dad is a recently disgraced former prime minister…”

A celebration of our cultural community | Mon 9 Aug – Sun 15 Aug
Reason to Create is a pop-up festival in which we celebrate and showcase some of the incredible versatility, resilience and creativity of members of our city’s cultural community.
We have thrown our doors open for a week of free, low cost and pay-what-you-like events created by artists from our Creative Hub, that span a range of art-forms in a range of spaces in and around our building. Expect to find theatre shows, comedy, music, film & art, an insight into creative processes, networking events and a vibrant range of exciting, fresh ideas on show.
Inspired by the artists who told us that Exeter Phoenix offered them ‘a reason to create’ over lockdown, we are offering this platform to artists and audiences alike to get a taste of some of what makes the cultural community we share so special.
*Subject to a £1.50 ticketing system charge. We don’t charge this to make a profit. Find out more >>
