Presented by Search Party.
My Son & Heir is an anarchic celebration of the everyday heroism
of parenthood, set amongst a never-ending mess of plastic, flashing-beeping, bubble-blowing chaos.
Search Party are parents, they have a son born in the same year
as ‘Baby Cambridge’, and that’s where the similarities end. My
Son & Heir confronts the spectacle of the ‘New Royals’ and their
strategic attempts to appear just like us. In a playful examination
of the relentlessness of raising children, and the guilt-ridden
one-upmanship of mainstream baby culture, Search Party
consider what sort of man their son and heir will become.
Part of Search Party’s Growing Old With You series, a life-long
performance project exploring their changing perspective of age,
as they grow old together.
