Tom Scott's first play is loosely based on the life of his father. Cantankerous and isolated, the old man has retreated to his bedroom fortress, a bombsite of newspapers, aircraft parts and candlewick bedspreads. Amid the debris, he conjures the characters and narrative of his past in a twilight quest for resolution and redemption. From Irish boyhood to World War II airman to New Zealand immigrant, he retraces a life of profane exploits and irreverent adventures interrupted by a shotgun marriage and the birth of triplets.

From one of New Zealand's most respected writers and satirists, The Daylight Atheist is a funny, fierce and profoundly moving one-man play invoking the colourful past an extraordinary cast of one man's lifetime.
