Honour thy mother and thy father. Thou shalt not murder thy father. Nor thy mother. But definitely not thy father. If thou art going to murder either of your parents, murder thy mother instead of thy father. Do not murder thy father.
The whole family knew he was a good dad. But he wasn’t well, he had a weak heart, so they gathered around him to protect him - from everything, because he really was a good dad. And Donna was special; he loved her the most. So why is Donna in prison?
Based on real life events from the 1980s, The Good Dad, A Love Story is the latest one-woman play from multi award-winning playwright Gail Louw. Performed by Sarah Lawrie and directed by Anthony Shrubsall, this haunting drama is told from the perspectives of mother, daughter and sister, and asks the question what it means to be a family.
“Sarah Lawrie provides a tour de force performance looking at a family drama from three vastly different perspectives.” Fringe Review
“...A must-watch for anyone looking for something thought-provoking and emotional.” The Strand Magazine
