Following last year’s phenomenal success of The Father by Florian Zeller (Theatre Royal Bath, Tricycle, Wyndham’s and Duke of York’s from February), the Chocolate Factory in association with Theatre Royal Bath is delighted to present the UK premiere of Zeller’s biting new play The Truth.
French novelist and playwright Zeller has been awarded the prestigious Prix Interallié (for his novel The Fascination of Evil) and two Molière awards for his plays The Father and The Mother. This is the English language premiere of a new version of The Truth by Christopher Hampton (Les Liaisons Dangereuses) and is directed by Lindsay Posner (Abigail’s Party, Communicating Doors and Dinner With Saddam).
