A one man two hander, written and performed by Peter Henderson,
playing both father and son, premiered at Brighton in 2012.
Spitfires, trick cyclists, electric shocks and toilet rolls; the tragic-comedy
of a father and son’s hair raising adventures over the breakfast table.
In six interleaving monologues, father and son recall their respective ‘glory days’ and perceptions of their shared family history. The thrills and spills of soaring spitfires, pill-popping punks and bubbly barmaids are contrasted with the ever-present memory of the lost wife and mum.
August 2013 saw Peter take the show to Edinburgh, where he performed to full houses at The Counting House as part of the Free Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In addition to Who Did I Think I Was? Peter co-starred with
award-winning Richard Gadd ‘Breaking Gadd’, at the same venue.
