The Arts Centre

Full Beam Visual Theatre presents My Baby Just Cares For Me.

Tickets £8.50 / £6.50 concessions.

Dad is growing old disgracefully – in between fixing up the house, that is.  Catherine has a life to live and Mr Right to find.  The last thing either of them need is someone getting in the way….

Using puppets, Super 8 projection, upside-down physicality and a Space Hopper, this show charts the erratic course of a daughter’s love for her father through thick and thin.  Snatching unexpected warmth and humour from the jaws of a desperate and complex situation, this is a sharp, stylish and poignant show with a sizzling soundtrack.

In a country with a rapidly aging population, where pension plans and life plans don’t match up, who’s going to look after our parents? What are you going to do with yours?

“Full of music, movement, film, dextrous puppetry and gentle laughs” – The Guardian

“Comical, elegant and thought-provoking” – Venue Magazine
