Winner of the 2014 Molière Award, France’s most prestigious honor for a new work of theater. Now 80 years old, André 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 pajamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control.
In a darkly humorous and deeply poignant translation by Christopher Hampton, Florian Zeller’s The Father is a tragi-comic mystery, a sobering and realistic family story, and an unsentimental, emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia. This unique play is a dramatic illustration of the physical losses which occur along with the mental ones and makes your brain hum with the unique potential of theatre… perfect for the Adventure Space.
