Description

Following a sell-out, five-star run at Vault Festival in London, Son of Dyke is the hilarious true story of a young, cocksure gay man who crumbles after the death of his lesbian mother, which launches him on a journey to find his sperm-donor father. Written and performed by Jordan Waller (ITV's Victoria, Darkest Hour), it's an evening of outrageous humour and poignant storytelling that gets to the heart of what it means to be a modern man. 'Dynamic, delicate, direct and definitely something you should go and see' ***** (AYoungerTheatre.com).

Theatre Weekly (5/5 stars) 15 days ago

As touching and emotional as it is uproarious, Son of Dyke breaks the mold to portray the experiences of modern life in a completely unfiltered way.

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 16 days ago

I have a slight confession of bias. Any show that warms up its arriving audience with music by Kate Bush has, as far as I'm concerned, already earned at least three stars - as well as my immediate goodwill.Of course, it's possible for the subsequent production to squander the latter...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 20 days ago

Written and performed by Jordan Waller, Son of Dyke is an unconventional coming-of-age autobiographical play. Waller recounts his uber-liberal and unusual upbringing – raised by a lesbian couple and told, when he was eleven, by one of his mothers that he was gay. After the sudden death of his other...
