Surprise Dad this Father’s day with a show you can both drink all the way through!
From Frank Zappa to Billy Ray Cyrus, Amy Winehouse to Eva Cassidy, dads and daughters in the spotlight have long been the subject of scrutiny and celebration – and are responsible for their fair share of dad jokes.
In this original work, actor and vocalist Tegan Jones takes audiences on a journey of the relationships between fathers and their daughters, focusing on female vocalists and the fathers who inspired them to sing. Tegan intertwines her own stories about her father’s influence on her musical journey with those of famous singers. Some stories will surprise you, some will make you cringe in recognition and most of them will make you want to hug your father really, really tightly.

Like most families, the Stones are not exactly functional. The mother is way too upbeat even while her new partner resents her. One son never looks up from his phone and the other never looks up from his navel. And the only daughter has been indoctrinated in a bizarre apocalyptic cult that doesn’t seem so bizarre now that the end of the world is imminent.
Prayers to Broken Stone is an original Australian work dealing with family in a darkly comedic way.
