Notnow Collective presents

DadMan: The Bathtime Warrior

Saturday 9th June, 2.30pm (babies up to 18 months welcome!) & 7.30pm

Supported by Arts Council England, mac Birmingham, and In Good Company.

This is a show about not giving Mum a day off, and about not baby-sitting your own kids.

DadMan is a warrior. He stands strong at the gates of an ideal Birth-Plan and sings the blues about Being The Only Man At A Parent And Baby Group. He courageously navigates the precipices of School Runs. DadMan enters the contest for the title of The Breadwinner armed with swords and Lego.

This show is partly quiz, partly story intertwined with live music and original songs, partly total fantasy where DadMan dives in and out of the bathtub, running into Trust, Breasts, Flexi –Hours, Soft Play Areas and Sex (not necessarily in that order, or at the same time!!).

Finally, DadMan realises there is actually another, much bigger mountain to climb.

Notnow Collective specialise in the baby-friendly, baby-welcoming and baby-proof shows for adults. Enjoy a great night out at daytime, without needing to spend on a baby-sitter! If, on the other hand, you desire a baby-free experience, join us for the evening show!

“Notnow Collective are exploring an important and interesting issue in DadMan – the work-in-progress showing was by turns funny and genuinely moving. I look forward to seeing how the piece develops further.” PAUL WARWICK, CHINA PLATE
