David Baddiel – My Family: Not The Sitcom
Vaudeville Theatre, Strand, London, WC2R 0NH
David Baddiel returns to the West End in My Family: Not The Sitcom at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Following a critically acclaimed, complete sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, My Family: Not The Sitcom comes to the Vaudeville Theatre for a strictly limited 5 week run.
My Family: Not the Sitcom runs from 12 September 2016 until 15 October 2016 at the Vaudeville Theatre.
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, what we can and can’t say in an over-policed moral culture, and gay cats. Come and be offended on David’s behalf.
