Full cast announced for The Father - Duke of York's
Full casting has now been announced for the Theatre Royal Bath and the Tricycle Theatre's production of The Father by Florian Zeller, in a new translation by Christopher Hampton, which will return to the West End for a limited season at the Duke of York's Theatre from 24 February to 26 March 2016.
Joining Kenneth Cranham who will reprise the role of 'Andre' will be Amanda Drew (Anne), Rebecca Charles, Brian Doherty, Daniel Flynn and Jade Williams.
The production originally opened at the Theatre Royal Bath and had its London premiere at the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn. It later transferred to the West End for a limited season at the Wyndham’s Theatre where it ran from 30 September to 21 November 2015.
"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."
The production is directed by James Macdonald, with designed by Miriam Buether, lighting design by Guy Hoare and sound designed by Christopher Shutt. It is presented in the West End by Theatre Royal Bath Productions, the Tricycle Theatre and Simon Friend.
Kenneth Cranham recently won the Critics' Circle Award for Best Actor for his role in the production. We caught up with the actor at the award ceremony to discuss the show - read our interview with him here.
