Present day, UK. Father walking down the street pushing a pram. He runs into a neighbour who remarks: 'Giving Mum a day off?'

This is a show about not babysitting 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.

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

Part quiz, part story and intertwined with live music and original songs, DadMan: The Bath-time Warrior deals with the surprise, shock and change brought on by the expectations of fatherhood. It also addresses issues of control and supervision from a fresh point of view.

Not Now Collective

Notnow Collective was founded by Tina Hofman and Kristina Gavran out of necessity to make their caring roles visible and explore ways of integrating parenthood into both professional practice and quality theatre experience. They are rehearsing with their children present in the rehearsal room and they offer baby-friendly matinees to audiences, making theatre accessible to parents and carers of small children. This is what they call baby-friendly and baby-proof.
