“There’s one thing no one prepared me for. Not the antenatal classes, the friends or family, even those who were already parents.”
This is a show about not babysitting your own kids.
After investigating motherhood in our first show “Wonderwoman”, Notnow Collectives talks fatherhood. It was quite complicated.
DadMan: The Bath-time Warrior deals with the surprise, shock and change brought on by the expectations of fatherhood.
