Back by popular demand following a critically acclaimed West End run at the Vaudeville Theatre and sold-out residency at the Menier Chocolate Factory, David Baddiel announces an extended 10-week West End run of My Family: Not the Sitcom at London’s Playhouse Theatre from Tuesday 28 March to 3 June 2017.
These dates will be the final chance to see David perform his hit show. Tickets go on general sale today (20 January 2017).
When family members die, or are lost to dementia, all we tend to say about them is that they were wonderful. But if that is all you can say about them, you may as well say nothing: to truly remember our loved ones, you have to call up their weirdnesses, their madnesses, their flaws. Because the dead, despite what we may think, are not angels.
My Family: Not the Sitcom is a massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. It’s a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dementia, what we can and can’t say in an over-policed moral culture, golf and gay cats.
