The day Nick Makoha realised he was going to become a father, he also realised he had no idea how to be one…

This is one man’s honest revelation of how pop culture raised him in the absence of his father. We follow Nick’s journey as he discovers what it takes for a man to become a hero, and how a hero can be just a man….

My Father and Other Superheroes is a moving and powerful story about the journey from childhood to fatherhood. Set across continents and eras, it follows one man’s struggle to come to terms with the responsibilities of being a parent and his confrontation with his own father’s absence.

'A fantastic piece of theatre…Makoha’s performance is raw and captivating… the trick is to find the human in the hero.'

This is part of a larger Father’s Day celebration at The Village Hall and Circus West Village including: DJs, superhero face painting, make your own superhero cape or mask, Super Dad hosts, and a Food Festival. For more information click here.
