What is Lazarus’ Daughter about?
Daughter is a play performed by Adam Lazarus himself. He plays The Father and gives a powerful performance with his satirical piece which is an exhilarating and yet dark account of fatherhood. Whilst Lazarus’ character is very funny and extremely engaging, it is clear that he is deeply troubled. The story doesn’t shy away from themes of love, violence and the deeply rooted misogyny that is ingrained within society. It shines light on how misogyny is everywhere; within not just societies but our communities, families and friends, and even – for some of us – within ourselves. This powerhouse play performed by Lazarus confronts toxic masculinity directly and unabashedly.
