About The Play
#LoveWins, or so the marriage equality campaign has decreed. But then what happens?
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 preschool applications, and discuss their work. Alan and Rob & 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 couples through their developing friendship, the conversation deepens from after-school pick up to the cracks in their marriages. Dada Woof Papa Hot smartly captures the upper class urban parent experience, particularly at this cultural moment.
The regional premiere of Dada Woof Papa Hot, written by Peter Parnell, is presented by Three Bone Theatre under the direction of Sidney Horton.
Dada Woof Papa Hot contains adult language and themes and is recommended for ages 16+.
"Mr. Parnell’s play smartly explores the complex emotional and sexual dynamics of relationships, gay and straight, and how they can evolve (or devolve), once the responsibilities of raising children factors into the equation.” -The New York Times
There are seven roles available. All characters are upper middle-class parents trying to navigate the jungle that is cut-throat NY private school parenting while trying to hold on to their lives and identities pre-kids. Each character is messy and trying to navigate the heteronormative relationship stages: marriage, parenting, separation.
We are actively seeking actors of color for any of the roles. These characters are male- and female-presenting but this does not limit actors of all gender identities to audition. Actors of all racial and ethnic identities, gender identities and abilities/disabilties are encouraged to audition.
