My Dad’s Blind: Award-Winning Play

September 28, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny

‘My Dad’s Blind’ was written by Dublin Fringe Festival winner Anna Shiels McNamee, whose parents are from Donegal. The play won “Best Production” at Dublin Fringe Festival 2018.

The play centres 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. It covers all the awkward, embarrassing and ridiculous ways they struggle to navigate a sighted world with a guide dog that’s just had a stroke.

“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
