The Great Almighty Gill

13:15, 03 - 28 Aug

New Perspectives presents The Great Almighty Gill. Written and performed by Daniel Hoffmann-Gill.

My Dad, Dave, died on 5 November 2015 of complications related to dementia. It was f*cking awful. But the eulogy I gave was brilliant. It deserves a bigger crowd. My way to see if from the molten wreckage of dementia some humanity, art and wonder can be salvaged. I f*cking hope so.

Join Daniel as family and friends, to experience the legendary life and times of Dave through a tour-de-force autobiographical performance, part tribute, part stand-up with occasional lip-syncing. Contains strong language.
