Andre is a man facing persecution from all sides, and he refuses to take it any longer. After all, he still has all his faculties… Doesn’t he?
Darkly humorous and deeply poignant, The Father is a tragi-comic mystery, a sobering and realistic family story and an unsentimental, emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia.
The play won the 2014 Molière Award for Best Play and gained widespread critical acclaim in its 2014 UK premiere starring Kenneth Cranham.
“A super-smart, finally heart-breaking play. An unqualified triumph.” The Telegraph
