My Dad’s Blind

The winner of “Best Production” at Dublin Fringe Festival 2018, ‘My Dad’s Blind’ returns to The Town Hall Theatre as part of a nationwide tour in September 2019.

Centring on a dysfunctional relationship between a blind father and his sighted daughter, My Dad’s Blind uses audio recordings, irreverent comedy and real life memories to explore a father daughter relationship and all the awkward, embarrassing and ridiculous ways they struggle to navigate a sighted world with a guide dog that’s just had a stroke. My Dad’s Blind is written by Anna Sheils-McNamee, directed by Gemma Aked-Priestley and stars Steve Blount and Anna Sheils- McNamee.

“At its core lies an astringent comic sensibility and a lively theatrical imagination, brought to life by the energetic performers. All in all, a singular vision of a potentially difficult subject.” ★★★★ – The Irish Times

“Feels more authentic than anything this reviewer has seen at the Fringe in years.” ★★★★ – The Reviews Hub
