Love Sex Fleas God: Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Dad is a sincere, emotive, and thought-provoking story by a stay-at-home father about his hardships and the different relationships that shape his values, and contribute to his input as a family man. The show is currently running at Dick’s until 8th July as part of David Muller’s contribution to this year’s awesome Fringe Theatre lineup.This single hander has been adapted from the book by Celia Musikanth who also directs and Muller, seen at last year’s fest as Oom Schalk Lourens, who also plays Bruce. The book of the same title is written by Bruce Clark. This play is a marked departure from Muller’s old style of story-telling in his other single-handers and may just surprise a few patrons.
With Scientology spreading its tentacles around the globe Bruce’s story highlights the ability to loosen the stranglehold of this cult. He turns a toxic childhood into an empathetic & caring fatherhood.
In this production we experience Bruce as he grows from an insecure and angry young man – having once suggested to his dying mother that she would have been better off giving birth to an eighteen year old Scientologist and that he would rather get a dog than have children – to a proud father. It all makes for inspirational and absorbing theatre.
Love Sex Fleas God at Dick’s in the Monument runs until 8th July. Tickets may be booked through the Internet or at the Festival booking offices on the Village Green and up at the Monument. Click on Internet to book.
