Originally produced in 2017 by The Theatre Centre with QuipTake and Pandemic Theatre, Daughter by Adam Lazarus will travel to London, England this March where it will receive its UK premiere at Battersea Arts Centre. Your support will help Daughter be part of BAC’s Going Global season which brings together the best of international performance and UK artists telling global stories.
Daughter has earned rave reviews for its candour, its daring, and its powerhouse solo performance. A riveting and thoroughly engaging performer, Adam Lazarus offers us a public display as an intimate and desperate confession and invokes the need for more of us to speak up. Written and performed by actor, director and Canada’s ‘bouffon-king’ Adam Lazarus, Daughter is co-created with Melissa D’Agostino, Jiv Parasram and Ann-Marie Kerr who also directs the show.
Your support will help us:
- Bring Canadian artists to participate in international conversations and global storytelling
- Build and strengthen The Theatre Centre’s relationships with international companies
- Engage international audiences with critical discussions that interrogate and challenge toxic masculinity
Your gift will help us bring the story of Daughter to new audiences and new heights. Thank you for your generosity!
