“Myers is Brilliant”- Globe and Mail
Presented by the SKAM Board of Directors, the show was a nod to Artistic Producer Matthew Payne’s recent foray into parenthood.This instructional lecture by a first-time semi-competent father answers the burning question of what happens when a self-involved man-child becomes a new father, as well as providing helpful hints for other fathers-to-be such as: “Is your life as you know it really over?” And “Can you safely operate a fax machine/belt sander/breast pump on two hours sleep?” And “Is it really possible to become so obsessed with bowel movements and nipples that you a make up little nicknames for them? Like ‘Jerome’? Or ‘Kathy?’”
Featuring original tunes What If, Nobody Warned Me Bout the Drool, Time Management Blues, and Yes-Honey-I’d-Be-More-Than-Happy-To-Make-Dinner-And-Hand-Wash-All-These-Cloth-Diapers-As-Soon-As-I-Finish-Giving-You-A-Back-Rub-And-Vacuuming-The-Floor-Again-Because-You-Are-Hyper-Paranoid-About-Germs,-Really-I-Would,-No,-I’m-Not-Just-Saying-That-Because-I-Think-It’s-What-You-Want-to-Hear,-I-Want-to-Do-It,-Look,-I’m-Doing-It-Right-Now,-See?
For anyone who is going to be a Dad, is a Dad, has a Dad or knows a Dad.
