Bad Dad is coming to St Luke’s Bombed Out Church Liverpool this July, in an outdoor show produced by Heartbreak Productions and based on the book by one of the UK’s most popular children’s authors – David Walliams. A sometimes sad, sometimes funny tale, Bad Dad follows son Frank and his father Gilbert as they navigate family life together and struggle to escape the clutches of the local crime lord and clear Gilbert’s name.

Gilbert is a father struggling with the challenges of parenthood and trying to navigate the complexities of family life. This show will resonate with youngsters and adults alike, as it explores the relatable themes of love, loss, family dynamics and the ups and downs of being a parent.

What makes this performance of Bad Dad particularly special is that it is all outdoors, characteristic to many Heartbreak Productions shows. The company often take their shows to parks, gardens, and open spaces, and this immersive backdrop adds an extra layer of charm and authenticity to the production, while the talented cast of actors bring the characters to life, infusing them with depth and delivering a range of comedic and dramatic moments to captivate the audience.

Expect an inclusive theatrical experience as the producers encourage audience participation and interaction, breaking the fourth wall and involving audience members in the unfolding of the story. This interactive approach will foster a sense of community and allows audience members to become active participants in the performance.

A terrific performance that will have you crying out with laughter and remembering the importance of family and friendship, Bad Dad at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church Liverpool is set to be a truly memorable trip out for parents and older kids. We recommend you book tickets early to avoid missing out on this popular event.
