The Father


The Crescent Theatre Company presents

The Father

by Christopher Hampton/Florian Zeller

25 Apr - 2 May in the Studio

There will be an After Dark discussion following the 19:45 performance on Fri, 1st May. Free to ticket holders.

This intriguing play revolves around Andre, an elderly man with dementia, and his daughter Anne who is struggling to maintain a life of her own as she cares for her father during his painful degeneration.

Reality itself is questioned as events are unfolded through Andre's eyes. With insight and ingenuity, Zeller shares with us Andre's futile efforts to make sense of a bewildering and ever-changing world, a world of dislocation and contradiction.

Echoes of ‘King Lear’ abound in this darkly honest and disturbing, yet very poignant, drama.
