A Search Party Performance


  • 29 January 2016 - 30 January 2016
  • The Studio

This is an anarchic celebration of the everyday heroism of parenthood, set amongst a never-ending mess of plastic, flashing-beeping, bubble-blowing chaos.

Search Party are parents, they have a son born in the same year as ‘Baby Cambridge’, and that’s where the similarities end. My Son & Heir confronts the spectacle of the ‘New Royals’ and their attempts to appear just like us.

In a playful examination of the guilt-ridden one-upmanship of mainstream baby culture, Search Party consider what sort of man their son and heir will become.

“A phenomenal show about the complexity of parenthood.” Total Theatre

My Son & Heir was commissioned by The Showroom Projects, Bristol (UK), made with support from the University of Chichester, (UK). A Pulse, Mayfest, Sprint & Nightwatch co-commission.
