Looking for a great show to see during the festival? Look no further! Fathers Network Scotland's head of programmes DAVE DEVENNEY has news of a great collaboration for Year of the Dad...
BEING A DAD is a drama reflecting the lived experiences, hopes, fears and challenges faced by many fathers, especially disadvantaged young fathers, in Scotland today. Challenges that can be (and are) overcome with courage, knowledge and support.
Written by Edinburgh-based playwright Duncan Kidd and performed by Strangetown Theatre Company as part of the Just Festival, this brand-new collaboration for Year of the Dad celebrates the difference a great dad can make to children, families and society as a whole.
Just Festival events aim to challenge perceptions, celebrate differences and promote respectful dialogue. The conversations, talks, exhibitions and performances which constitute Just’s annual programme are designed to engage with topical local, national and international questions of social justice, equality and identity, including prejudice against race, ethnicity, class and economic status.
In 2016, the festival events will be held under the theme of From the Edge. With that theme in mind, it wants to challenge audiences to engage with the experiences and ideas of those people who are commonly perceived to sit at the edge of our communities and societies.
'Being a Dad' is being shown as part of Just Festival on the 12, 13, 16, 17, 19 and 20 of August in St Johns Church, Edinburgh.
