The Father At LTDTickets
The most acclaimed new play of the decade, The Father, transfers to Wyndham's Theatre for eight weeks only.
Now eighty 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 Father is the winner of France's highest theatrical honour, the 2014 Moliere Award for Best Play, and in Christopher Hampton's crisp and witty translation, has dazzled audiences and critics alike at the Theatre Royal Bath and the Tricycle Theatre. It has received an unprecedented eight five star reviews from major national newspaper critics.
Tony and Olivier Award nominees, Kenneth Cranham and Claire Skinner reprise their indelible performances for sixty one performances only.
