My Dad's Boy
11 February - 4 March 2017
The Fortune Theatre 2017 season opens with an exciting new play My Dad’s Boy by award-winning twentysomething playwright Finnius Teppett. Peter used to play for Otago and in 1985 despite a loss to the Lions in the House of Pain he came close to joining David Kirk’s All Blacks. Honest! Life hasn’t really been as simple since. His son is a chip off the old block in a 2017 kind of way. While he’s writing this play about his Dad he finds out his girlfriend is pregnant. Men, their myths and realities fuel this richly honest kiwi comedy.
