Since September 2007, Navan Springboard Family Support Services host “He’s my Dad Group” weekly meetings. Each member has their own unique experience as a lone parent, a house husband or separated father. All aspire to do their very best for their children.
In 2008, the group wrote, devised and recorded a radio play called “Where’s my Daddy gone?”, a dramatised representation of the experiences encountered by the members. Following the success of the play, produced by Lmfm and available on audio CD, Navan Springboard has approached Oulala Productions to bring the play to the stage.
The project will consist of Writing and Drama workshops with the group of fathers, to adapt the script to a full-length stage play. This will be followed by rehearsals and a performance in Solstice Arts Centre in Niovember 2009.
