Description

Can you imagine discovering that your father is a predator?

Hailed by critics as “brilliant”, “masterful” and “unforgettable”, Spitting In The Face Of The Devil is award-winning New York monologist Bob Brader's gripping true story of discovering that his abusive and charismatic ex-Marine father is a pedophile. A powerful tale of personal survival and triumph that pertains to today's focus on sexual predators, Spitting In The Face Of The Devil is a 7-Time Best of Fest Award-Winner, including “Best Show” of the London Fringe and “Best Script” and “Best Encore” at NYC's United Solo Theatre Festival. Brader's daring, uplifting, often comedic play has garnered acclaim at the New York International, San Francisco, Orlando International, Victoria and Montreal Fringe Festivals, among many others.
