Fringe First winner’s new comic tale of dating, dadding and trying to get a child who desperately needs the toilet to go to the toilet.
In Richard Marsh’s uplifting Zoom heartbreaker, a father tries to protect his son from the messy truth of mum’s departure… thus causing much more mess. A son is told he should never tell a lie… which is a lie.
Warning: contains children, swearing and children swearing.
This is a work-in-progress.
