In Jeremy O. Harris’ searing new play “Daddy,” Franklin, a young black artist on the verge of his first show, meets Andre (Alan Cumming), an older white art collector, and before long their erotic link deepens into an irresistible bond. But when Franklin’s Christian mother decides that her son is in peril, she enters into a battle of wills with Andre over the soul of the man they both call baby. Basquiats and Birkins, gospel and pop, and fantasy and reality collide around a Bel Air swimming pool in this deeply moving exploration of intimacy and identity. Danya Taymor (PASS OVER) directs this wildly theatrical and dangerous world-premiere play by the recipient of the Vineyard’s 2018 Paula Vogel Playwriting Award, in a co-production from The New Group and Vineyard Theatre.
Presented in the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street).
