There is a woman in Andre’s flat claiming to be his daughter. But Anne lives in London now… Doesn’t she? And Andre lives in Paris... Doesn’t he? And where has Anne’s sister, Elsie 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.


"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
