Meet Dad - A successful, career-driven 40-something man who has become a father for the first time. For a man that’s 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 over staying 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?

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 have a name? Well, that will be explained.

Dadism! A solo male show about the experience of an Asian male becoming a first time father in his forties. It is a comedy about identity; what it means to be a man and father whilst navigating traditional gender roles, and the cultural norm 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.
