Production Description
It’s a fall night in New York City, and two couples who recently met at a parents group are out to dinner at the hot new restaurant. The foursome share photos of their kids, trade war stories from pre-school applications, and discuss their work. Alan and Rob, and Scott and Jason find plenty of common ground as gay couples raising kids in the city, and a play date with their children is set.

As we follow these two pairs through their developing friendship, the conversation deepens from afterschool pick-up to the cracks in their marriages – struggles which are mirrored in the relationships of their straight friends as well. Dada Woof Papa Hot, a new play by Peter Parnell (QED), smartly captures the urban parent experience, particularly at this head-spinning cultural moment. #LoveWins, or so the marriage equality campaign has decreed. But what happens next? What pieces of your former self are lost when becoming a parent? Is gaining entry and acceptance into mainstream culture worth giving up what made you unique?
