Adam Lazarus: ‘If you don’t teach your son about sex, porn will’

Daughter caused chaos at the fringe in 2018. A lot of people hated it. I loved it. When I spoke to Lazarus about the controversy, he was really thoughtful. He was very clear that the show is not for everyone, and it can be incredibly hard to watch.

” The hardest responses to reconcile are from the people – primarily women – who have been hurt by the performance. “I don’t think everyone needs to see the show,” Lazarus says frankly, when I ask about those who reported crying in the toilets afterwards, wishing they hadn’t seen it. “The show picks at a scab and if you have a trauma or a trigger that’s in there, it’s gonna peel really bad. I don’t know how to prepare people for that.” After every performance the company hold a space to talk, led by producer Aislinn Rose. Lazarus doesn’t attend those sessions; audiences feel more comfortable without him.”
