LOVE SEX FLEAS GOD, Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Dad

Performance • Running Time: 70 mins
Directed by Celia Muiskanth | written by Bruce Clark adapted for stageby David Muller and Celia Muiskanth

What drives a man to say, "I'd rather get a dog," when his dying mother suggests he settle down, marry, have children. 

The answer is in Bruce Clark's autobiographical book, Love Sex Fleas God, confessions of a stay-at-home father, now a theatrical adaptation Directed by Celia Musikanth, Circle Productions has David Muller as Bruce and a host of other roles in this single-hander. Love Sex Fleas God is amusing, authentic, honest, and poignant with many moments that resonate . Parents-to-be, definitely fathers-to-be will be inspired as quiet, reserved Bruce turns his toxic childhood into an awesome fatherhood. 

This is the latest in the impressive series of David Muller’s characterizations. Joining HC Bosman’s Oom Schalk, Einstein, Tommy the Kalk Bay Fisherman, the Narrator of Whale Nation.

-Lieske Bester, False Bay Echo

'a theatrical tour de force...brilliant acting, direction...on stage is naked, honest humanity, fuelled with a sustained, lively pace, underpinned by humour, gloriously honest poignant moments ; all of this should be...seen again and again.'

- George Hill, Casa Labia

'Inspirasie vir ander pa's om pa te wees in 'n moderne veranderende samel '

- Marchelle Van Zyl, Die Burger

'Muller tackles this rich agenda with unforced authority...Musikanth's direction steadies the pace...All the anxieties, frustrations and delights of sex, marriage and fatherhood are woven into the layered texture of the script, what emerges is the redemptive powwer of love (as well as the fun of sex, the inconvenience of fleas - the couple have a dog - and the role of spirituallity in bringing a measure of sdanity to an insane world) evening of thought-provoking theatre.'

- Beverley Brommet, Cape Argus
