"Daddy" A Melodrama Information

I will be your father figure. Put your tiny hand in mine.

I will be your preacher teacher. Anything you have in mind.

A young black artist meets an older white art collector. A gospel choir emerges from an infinity pool. A mother stops at nothing to save her son’s soul. When it’s summer every day…when even is it? In this Bel Air tale of love and family, intimacy is a commodity and the surreal gets real.

The UK premiere of Jeremy O. Harris' Daddy comes to the Almeida Theatre in spring 2022
