There is a woman in André's flat claiming to be his daughter. But Anne lives in London now… Doesn’t she? And André lives in Paris... Doesn’t he? And where has Anne’s sister, Elise gone? Don’t tell him she’s dead. She isn’t… Is she?
An international sensation, The Father is the most acclaimed new play of the decade, smashing our misconceptions of time, memory and dementia in this profoundly moving and darkly comic masterpiece.
WHY WE LOVE THIS PLAY
"The Father is a play which bristles with theatricality. It’s a story which is best told on-stage. It takes an unlikely protagonist and with delicacy, compassion, edge and muscle, tells his story brilliantly."
-Artistic Director, Ross Gumbley

"It is one of the best performances I’ve witnessed and without a shadow of a doubt, the one I feel the most privileged to get the chance to review – if we at Backstage had a star system, I would happily give it an 11/10."
"This is a play that will haunt your mind long after leaving the theatre. While the subject may be disturbing at times, this is a stunning piece of theatre, and I cannot recommend it highly enough."
"The production is testing for those in the audience as well as those on stage. Undertaken with humour, compassion and humanity, it illuminates brilliantly areas of emotional experience all too often unexpressed."
"The Father is not an 'easy' play to perform or watch. But this production gives it the power and pays it the respect it fully deserves."
