 My Dads Blind

Centring on a dysfunctional relationship between a blind father and his sighted daughter, My Dad’s Blind (Winner “Best Production” - Dublin Fringe Festival 2018) uses audio recordings, irreverent comedy and real life memories to explore a father/daughter relationships and all the awkward, embarrassing and ridiculous ways they struggle to navigate a sighted world with a guide dog that’s just had a stroke.

Feels more authentic than anything this reviewer has seen at the Fringe in years”
The Reviews Hub

“At its core lies an astringent comic sensibility and a lively theatrical imagination, brought to life by the energetic performers. All in all, a singular vision of a potentially difficult subject” The Irish Times
