MY SON & HEIR

MY SON & HEIR
Monday 24th August & Tuesday 25th August 2015 – 9.30pm

My Son & Heir 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 strategic attempts to appear just like us. In a playful examination of the relentlessness of raising children, and the guilt-ridden one-upmanship of mainstream baby culture, Search Party consider what sort of man their son and heir will become.

This new studio performance is part of Search Party’s Growing Old With You series, a life-long performance project exploring their changing perspective of age, as they grow old together.

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.
