The Father

5 (8) · Contemporary

Presented by Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Tricycle Theatre


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.

Author of this intriguing and compelling black comedy, Florian Zeller, has been hailed as “one of the hottest literary talents in France” (Independent). The Father (Le Père) is the winner of the 2014 Moliere Award for Best Play. The Molieres are considered France’s highest theatrical honour.
