If My Father Only Knew

If My Father Only Knew
News
Posted on 6 Mar 2019

Ever dressed in ladies' clothes? Charlie has, and no one understands him - especially his father, Henry (Stephen Neal).
Charlie, brilliantly played by Liam Wadsworth, isn't the only one with hidden desires. Savannah Gallo gives a twisted turn as Charlie's so-called bestie, Tori. Her gang is rounded out by very funny duo Slag (Shady Murphy) and Slut (Barbara Dabson).

Issues around social image, beauty and personal standing affect all the students, each in their own way, forcing them all to face inner truths and close-at-hand threats. Meanwhile, gruff and grieving Henry battles his own demons, which Neal portrays with gusto.
Touching on current societal issues and broken relationships, If My Father Only Knew is a great fifth show by writer and director Nathalie Bazan.
