"Tender, strong, funny, vulnerable, charming and so much more"

Broadway World (on BOYS)

After its hugely successful show BOYS seen at LIMF’20, The PappyShow returns with a multidisciplinary performance, weaving words, song, movement, design, costume and audio-visual that asks us all to consider the question, when you look at someone, What Do You See?

With a 12-strong cast and team of 27 creatives representing the spectrums of race, disability, sexuality, age and body shapes, plus all the diverse intersectional identities in Britain today, What Do You See? celebrates all those identities placing these communities at the centre of the story.

Believing the most diverse rooms are the richest and most likely to thrive - this work celebrates all of those identities. In a world where we have had to argue that Black Lives Matter, for disabled rights, for equal pay, against sexism, homophobia, transphobia - The PappyShow places these communities at the centre of the story and says WE SEE YOU.
