Didn’t Your Father Have This Talk With You?

 

Streaming Now!

A young teacher arrives in front of high school freshmen boys for a combined class – Religion and Sex Ed! Drawing from his own experience, master storyteller Tony Braithwaite shares a view into the real lives of the teens and their hilarious observations, unfiltered questions, and heartfelt personal stories.

Returning from the West Coast acting scene, “Mr. Braithwaite” arrives at his high school alma mater – a Jesuit school for boys. In his inimitable style of storytelling, he shares his 12 years’ of memories as a teacher learning alongside the honest and awkward young men who are finding their way in both the classroom and the world outside.

Best enjoyed by audience members aged 13+.

 

 

 

‘Didn’t Your Father’ was filmed before a live audience at the Playhouse during a sold-out extended run several seasons ago.

“This show is hilarious, and it is brilliant, but most of all it is a show that should not be missed.” – Broadway World
