In a production commissioned by the Finborough Theatre, and another in its acclaimed series introducing Canada's finest playwrights to the UK, a wildly theatrical, irreverently funny, horrifying European premiere from multi-award-winning playwright Daniel Macdonald.
Dot doesn't hate her father, she just wants to explode him out of his office tower to shake things up. Set him off. See what happens. And get an "A" on her science project...
Daring to challenge the law of physics, Dot interviews her flailing father and neurotic mother, as their world crashes to the ground. Just imagine. Your life in six seconds.
