Join the Journey: @ilkleylitfest of #fathersuperhero Here Thanks to @akuajan  for helping develop @fathersuperhero. Back in a rehearsal studio @mac_birmingham she showed me how heroes in a modern contest have an #African root. This gave me a way in to look at my story as a piece of art and let go of my attachment to it as an autobiography. 

Radical simply means ‘grasping things at the root. -Angela Davis

#fathersuperhero 1  Being a Dad in the real world is not as easy as it is on TV @fathersuperhero

The State: I have to credit @lemnsissay for his show Something Dark. It drove me to strive for authenticity when devising My Father & Other Superheroes. He understands the venerability of the child and how easily society can orphan them. Many of our real and imagined heroes are orphans. Batman…Spiderman…Superman etc

Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death. -Buddha


Question: I get asked a lot is why did you right My Father & Other Superheroes? Many reasons come to mind. Many sons have no bridge to their fathers this show I hope aspires to be the brick (house). Catch a preview @ilkleylitfest on 17th October at Ilkley Playhouse

Miss You: I don’t have the words to say it. You where a @fathersuperhero to a boy growing up with a single mother. Seeing you become Mork you helped me find the language inside to express the world outside. You are a light that has pulled a lot of people out of the dark.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.-Martin Luther King, Jr.
