[Daddy Issues = a derogatory term used to describe the behaviour of young women who are attracted to and / or have sexual relationships with older men.]
'Daddy Issues' is a monologue about older men, young women who love them, and the world who think these women are idiots. The monologue is based on autobiographical experiences, and oscillates between humour and seriousness. We meet dreaming girls, speedy moralists and shameful women, in stories of constantly being deprived of interpretation of their own sexuality. Welcome to group therapy!
