About The Show

Picture
Sit in on a live experiment that questions the sanity of a particularly peculiar subject - Katharine's dad. This interactive, multimedia examination dissects the relationship between a father turned diet-guru turned Disney fanatic, and his bewildered family. Can her hypothesis be proven? 


After her parent's difficult divorce when she was 11, Katharine has spent years trying to understand her father's strange behavior. She conceived of the show a few years ago after some convincing from friends who were equally fascinated with stories about her father. Utilizing the classic scientific method with photos, videos and anecdotes as proof, this presentation goes beyond you average lecture. As the audience is a major part of proving said theory, the show will differ from performance to performance.


Katharine Heller is the author of the 2008 NY Fringe Festival hit The Boy in the Basement, which was also featured in the Encore Series. This is her second collaboration with director Nell Balaban, who received an award for Outstanding Direction at the 2008 NY Fringe Festival for her work.
