How To Beat Up Your Dad (The Musical)


This is not a musical nor is it instructions on how to beat up your dad. I don’t know your dad, he might be really hard.

HOW TO BEAT UP YOUR DAD is the tale of one young man’s journey through manhood. From being a meek teenager looking for the secret to losing his virginity to becoming a young man stealing Yakults™, searching for happiness and finally standing up to his own dad with his fists.

Told through a cocktail of performance, spoken word, music and storytelling, HOW TO BEAT UP YOUR DAD is a comedy about masculinity and all the wrong ways to solve your problems.

Caravan Guys Theatre Co. People do awful things, really weird awful things and Caravan Guys want to show you why and make you laugh at them. We are the draughty corridor between hilarity and horror. We are the unknown stain on the caravan floor and the reason it’s going cheaply.

Disabled Access  

Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities.  

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
