When his daughter Elodie is born, Ben realises the closure he thought he’d found with his own long-dead father needs to be re-examined. Olivier Award-winning Polly Findlay directs the funny, heartbreaking new show from Benjamin Scheuer, the creator of Drama Desk Award-winning The Lion. ‘A tenderly beautiful piece about parenting and life… his extraordinary musicianship is combined with songs of intimate, intricate feeling’ (Mark Shenton). Scheuer ‘gets to the heart of the matter’ (New York Times) and ‘plays the guitar like he invented the instrument’ (Los Angeles Times).
