Following successful runs at the Theatre Royal Bath, the Tricycle Theatre in London and a West End season at Wyndham’s Theatre, Florian Zeller’s Moliere award-winning play, The Father will play at the Duke of York’s Theatre for a limited five week run, 24thFebruary – 26th March 2016, prior to a national tour.
Kenneth Cranham reprises his role as Andre. Now 80 years old, Andre was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pyjamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control.
The production is directed by James MacDonald, translated by Christopher Hampton, designed by Miriam Buether with lighting designed by Guy Hoare and sound designed by Christopher Shutt.
The Father will transfer to the Duke Of York’s Theatre from 24th February to 26th March 2016.
