DADISM!

BY ANJALI MYA CHADHA

"...is daddy on babysitting duties?"

"No! Its called patenting..."

"Dadism is completely relatable, and I believe everyone can see a part of themselves in this timeless comedy!"

"Dadism cleverly narrates the daunting aspect of the pregnancy process through the eyes of a first time father, "

Synopsis.

Meet Dad - A successful, career-driven 40 something man who has become a father for the first time. For a man that has never been out of his depth, boy is he…

 

On the night of the baby’s birth, Dad finds himself turfed out of the maternity ward, having been told to come back at visiting times.

 

But he’s not a visitor. Is he? Surely visitors are aunties and cousins.

He’s the dad… or  ‘your husband’... or birthing partner… now overstaying visitor… soon to be babysitter…

 

His identity seems to be determined by everyone else except him.

 

In a world where his wife is ‘Mum,’ and he has been relegated to ‘birthing partner,’ will he ever establish a position of his own?

 

Dadism! From the writer of the award nominated ‘The Dateless Wonder,’ comes a brand new comedy about parenting and double standards.

 

Between the stern midwife, the alpha couple that are Jenna & Jayesh, and social norms, what is the role of a dad in this day and age?

 

And does Dad actually have a name? Well, that will be explained...

Dadism is a solo male show, charting the experience of a man becoming a father for the first time. It is a comedy about identity, what it means to be a man and father whilst navigating traditional gender roles, and cultural norms of dads being providers rather than carers.

 

This comedy is the first of a trilogy charting the first three years of a new dad’s experience.
