    My Father and Other Superheroes

    The day Nick Makoha realised he was going to become a father, he also realised he had no idea how to be one... an honest and moving story about the journey from childhood to fatherhood. Directed by Benji Reid.

    'A fantastic piece of theatre...Makoha’s performance is raw and captivating'

    - UoBlogfest


    Set across continents and eras, My Father and Other Superheroes follows one man's struggle to come to terms with the responsibilities of being a parent and his confrontation with his own father's absence. Follow Nick's journey as he discovers what it takes for a man to become a hero, and how a hero can be just a man. 



    Take a look at this clip from the original production at Theatre Royal Stratford East.
