The Good Dad (A Love Story)


Gail Louw

Published by Methuen Drama

0 Male 1 Female

'You're my special girl.' It's such a bloody cliché. Larry said that, he said, 'it's a cliché'. He could've said, you're my favourite one. Or you're the one I love the most. But then love could mean something else, couldn't it?

The whole family knew he was a good dad

A really good dad

And Donna was special - he loved her the most

So why is Donna in prison?

Based on real events from the 1980s, The Good Dad is a haunting family drama by multi-award winning playwright Gail Louw

Told from the unique perspectives of mother, daughter and sister, this three-time Off West End Award nominated solo show is presented in support of the charity Victim Support

This edition was published to coincide with the run at The Space at Surgeons' Hall, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, in August 2023
