The Oral Stage Presents
OH DAD, POOR DAD
Grieving widow, neurotic son, the pet piranha & Venus flytraps … oh my
With support from the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) and produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc., New York, the Oral Stage is proud to bring to KL a unique tale written by noted American playwright, Arthur Kopit.
A woman-in-mourning checks into a lavish hotel with her neurotic son, a pet piranha and a pair of Venus flytraps. Moments after, a wealthy, love-stricken naval officer and the seductive, next-door babysitter pay them a visit. The fish and plants are now very hungry, the son wants to escape, and the woman’s dead husband is still lurking about somewhere…
A bizarre take on all things love, Oh Dad, Poor Dad parodies the domineering, protective mother who tries to smother her son, and also the son himself, who is too naïve and sheltered. It premiered Off-Broadway in 1962 and won the Vernon Rice and Outer Circle Awards in that same year. Oh Dad, Poor Dad was recently revived at Harvard University in 2007
