DADDY ISSUES

PRESENTED BY PASSING STRANGER THEATRE COMPANY
Daddy Issues, created by the Passing Stranger Theatre Company, is a newly written dark comedy about daddy issues, sex work, bedroom fantasies, imperfect feminism and immigration.

The main character, Natalia, is a Polish immigrant, an unsuccessful painter who works on a sex line. She mainly gets calls from older men who want to get a “young girlfriend experience” and for a moment live out their fantasies of what is no longer easily available to them when they’re stuck in tedious jobs, unfulfilling marriages and daily routines. Nat shares insights of her work and the requests she gets, slowly revealing details of her own affairs with men, her emotional baggage left by various complicated relationships and troubles of navigating one’s life where dreams are overshadowed by issues carried from childhood into adulthood.

“a really good, energetic, and absorbing story”
– London Pub Theatres

“A promising comedy that sticks two fingers up at the patriarchy and is not afraid to explore female sexuality.”
– Everything Theatre

“Krauze is clearly a talented storyteller with an original voice. There is a raw energy to her performance.”
– View From The Outside

Written and performed by Anna Krauze. Directed by Coral Tarran. This project is supported using public funding by the Arts Council England: we have been awarded the Arts Council National Lottery Project Grant 2021.
