Josh first wrote Embarrassing Parents Anonymous in 2017 as a play for a small, dedicated group of young actors. They wanted to interrogate what it was to grow up and the moving boundaries of the parent-child relationship. They, like their parents, were deeply afraid of growing up. More importantly, they all longed for a non-judgemental safe space where they could rely on their peers to support them through difficult times with their families. Thus, Embarrassing Parents Anonymous was born.
