Daddy Issues (Passing Stranger Theatre Company)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2022

Vaginas, daddies and trauma, this show has it all. The audience is introduced to Natalia, a well-practiced phone sex worker who has aspirations of becoming an artist, and throughout the performance we gradually uncover more about her, as the show develops into a fascinating character study. There are topical issues also integrated into the piece, highlighting the horrific experiences women face online and other aspects of contemporary life, but it’s done with a light touch, in a humorous, enjoyable way. Writer and star Anna Krauze is a great storyteller and gives a fantastic performance as she portrays this quirky character with so much on her mind. Over all, it’s a darkly funny performance about a compelling topic.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
