The Sunday Mail – Jon Bennett: My Dad’s Deaths Review

The Sunday Mail (24 Feb 2013) – Jon Bennett: My Dad’s Deaths Review

Rating – *****

South Australian expat Jon Bennett’s completely engaging story about his relationship with his father is the type of show the Fringe was created for. Using slides and tongue-in-cheek asides, Bennett tells it like it is about a man he has admired and unsuccessfully avoided all of his life: his Dad. Armed only with self-deprecating wit and memories, Bennett reminds us that ordinary people lead extraordinary lives. It is a funny, moving account of father-son relationships that are often forged in hell but can make it to heaven.
