Jeremy O. Harris’ world premiere of “Daddy” is set to begin performances February 12 ahead of an official opening March 5. The production, directed by Danya Taymor, plays The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Signature Center as a co-production from The New Group and The Vineyard.

The cast features Ronald Peet (The I-Land, Cute Activist) as Franklin and Alan Cumming as Andre, an older white art collector. Rounding out the company are Charlayne Woodard (POSE) as Zora, Tommy Dorfman (13 Reasons Why) as Max, Kahyun Kim (American Gods) as Bellamy, and Hari Nef (Transparent) as Alessia.

Flip through photos of the press day below:

In “Daddy,” an exploration of intimacy and identity in which Basquiats, gospel, and fantasy collide around a Bel Air swimming pool, Franklin and Andre's feverish link deepens into an irresistible bond, pushing Franklin's mother into a battle of wills over the soul of the man they both call baby.

The limited Off-Broadway engagement will feature scenic design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, and sound design by Lee Kinney. Casting is by Judy Henderson, CSA, and the production stage manager is Valerie A. Peterson.
