My Dad’s Blind by Anna Sheils-McNamee, winner of Best Production at the Dublin Fringe Festival Awards 2018 is on national tour and comes to the Wexford Arts Centre on Thursday, September 19th, at 8 pm.
It has an amazing cast. Starring Steve Blount (Game of Thrones – HBO/Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope – RTÉ/Minding Frankie – Breda Cashe Productions) and Anna Sheils-McNamee (Vikings – HISTORY/The Importance of Nothing – Pan Pan Theatre Comapny). Directed by Gemma Aked-Priestley
“Growing up people told me my Dad was “amazing”, which didn’t make any sense to me. He’s pretty boring – he works a 9-5 and watches Coronation Street in the evenings. I soon realised they were only saying this because he was blind. I wrote this play in response to that. However, this show ain’t no Ted Talk! Imagine Lauren from The Catherine Tate show (“…am I bothered…”) was a Kardashian and grew up with an epileptic guide dog – then you’ll be closer to the tone of this show.”
For the first time ever, Audio Description will be available at every performance on the tour. Audio Description on the national tour is sponsored by Fighting Blindness. Fighting Blindness fund world-leading research into treatments and cures for blindness, while caring for people and families through counselling and peer to peer support services.
