Presented by: Holden Street Theatres Edinburgh Fringe Award '22 In association with Lawrence Batley Theatre with KETCHUP productions and Richard Jordan Productions

Meet Daniel. He’s a strange boy, the ultimate super fan. His devotion to Jesus is slightly compromised by his obsession with Yorkshire diva, JANE!

His fanaticism is shared by his Mum until one day it to all goes horribly wrong. Has Daniel returned to seek revenge or heal old wounds? He just doesn’t know what to believe in anymore...

A darkly funny & moving drama from acclaimed playwright Philip Stokes about idolisation, growing older & the complex relationship between a son & a mother.

Join Daniel for a Mother's Day like no other...
