NoRopes Theatre Company is delighted to bring Laurence Clark’s An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting from across the waters to the Galway stage.

Growing up Laurence never saw dads with cerebral palsy; which made him think he’d never be a parent himself. Besides, the only thing he’d ever managed to look after was a cactus, and even that died from dehydration.

But then his future wife says he’d better be prepared for the fact she wants babies…which is a pretty strong opening line! What follows is the hilarious and heart-warming story of two people with cerebral palsy traversing the ups and downs of parenthood.
