ALMEIDA QUESTIONS – “DADDY” A MELODRAMA

IF YOU LIKE IT THEN YOU BETTER PUT YOUR NAME ON IT: DOES PATRONAGE IMPLY OWNERSHIP?

Tickets £5
Free to those aged 25 and under (limited to 2 per person)

production information

"Is not a patron . . . one who looks with unconcern on a man
struggling for life in water, and when he has reached the ground
encumbers him with help"
- Samuel Johnson

Without the Medici family would we have Michaelangelo’s The Last Judgement? Damien Hirst’s pickled shark without Saatchi? And without James I’s patronage would Shakespeare’s company The King’s Men simply have been ‘The . . . Men?’

Inspired by "Daddy", the Almeida Questions panel explores the layers of trust, obligation and ownership that exist between artists and their patrons and asks—is the role of the patron to be a champion, a mentor, or just the one who signs the cheques?

Almeida Questions is an eclectic programme of pre-show discussions which consider some of the questions raised by the work on our stage.
