Production Description
In Jeremy O. Harris’ searing new play “Daddy,” set in the LA hills, Franklin, a young black artist, finds himself seduced by Andre (Alan Cumming), a wealthy ‘daddy’ - that is, patron. What is it Franklin finds alluring about this man twice his age? His midcentury mansion? His Basquiats? The way he looks in a speedo? His enormous... pool? Though a tad surreal, their erotic link deepens from a naughty fetish to an irresistible love. But when Franklin’s Christian mother decides that her son is in peril, she enters into a deeply moving battle of wills with Andre over the soul of their baby boy. Danya Taymor directs this wildly theatrical and dangerous story where all forms of love collide in this world premiere.
