Full casting has been announced for the upcoming UK premiere of Florian Zeller’s play The Son, which will run at the Kiln Theatre from next month. Amanda Abbington will star in the play, which completes Zeller’s trilogy that included The Father and The Mother, and was nominated for 9 Molière awards following its French premiere. It is about a family on the verge of breakdown, while son Nicolas is skipping school, lying to his parents and hiding things away in his room.
It’s just that I’m not like the others…
As a family breaks down, a son begins to unravel. Nicolas is skipping school, lying to his family, hiding strange objects under his mattress. Is this typical teenager behaviour or a warning sign of hopelessness?
The highly anticipated UK premiere of The Son follows the sold out Olivier Award-winning The Father (Theatre Royal Bath, Tricycle Theatre, West End, National Tour) and the critically-acclaimed The Mother by Moliere Award-winning playwright Florian Zeller, directed by Michael Longhurst.
