My Father and Other Superheroes

29 May 2015, 7.30 – 8.30

Performance Space

My Father and Other Superheroes (Dir: Benji Reid) follows Nick's journey - from being smuggled out of his home country of Uganda at a young age, to the UK, Saudi Arabia and Kenya - to learn what it takes to truly become a hero.

This is the story of a poet who revisits his childhood when he learns that he is going to have a baby. For Nick Makoha, superheroes such as Superman, Spider-Man and Luke Skywalker had inadvertently provided the blueprints of how to be a good dad in the absence of his real father. In a highly physical piece, Nick illustrates his personal journey from being smuggled out of his home country of Uganda at a young age, to life in the UK, Saudi Arabia and Kenya, learning what it takes to truly become a hero.

This UK tour builds on the success of sold out runs at the Southbank Centre and Unicorn Theatre. As a special treat, audiences will receive a free graphic novel version of the show, created by former Marvel Comics and DC Comics illustrator Mike Collins, who has worked on such venerable titles as X-Men, Captain America, Batman, Spider-Man and the Doctor Who graphic novels.

Age range: 8+
Admission: £5.00 (£3.00 Concession)
