Bill Campbell's one-person performance laughs and cries about a
Dad's life that he knows very well.
"A Parenting Story" is a one act, one-person 90-minute play that examines the joys
and heartaches of raising children. Bill Campbell draws upon his 35 years as a
professional stand-up comedian and father of three to present a hilarious, heart
warming and compelling story. Within a simple living room setting, Bill's "Everyman"
character uses the advent of this 25th Father's Day to take the audience on a
remarkable tour from babies to grandparenting. You will laugh deeply and then wipe
a tear from your eye as Bill performs this real-life emotional roller coaster ride that
he simply calls his "parenting story." If you have a kid, then you have a story - all
parents do - this is Bill's and it's a story not to be missed.
