Fredricksson wrote the piece with her late father, Karl Fredricksson. It was Intended to have been performed by the two artists, but subsequent to his death, she has performed it as a solo piece. In the multimedia production, she brings his personal and professional life to the stage from his days as a young athlete, training for the Olympics by day and dressing up to the nines by night, to his stage career to the less glamorous later years of old age and depression.. The production won the Total Theatre Award at last year's Edinburgh Festival.
