Full casting announced for Florian Zeller’s The Son in the West End
Transferring from the Kiln Theatre, the play tells the story of a young boy facing the difficult reality of his parents’ divorce, who starts skipping school and lying to his family.
Directed by Michael Longhurst, Amanda Abbington, Laurie Kynaston, John Light, Amaka Okafor and Martin Turner all reprise their roles from the Kiln production for the 10-week run.
Cudjoe Asare joins the company to play Nurse, and The Son marks his professional stage debut.
The play is translated by Christopher Hampton and follows Zeller’s previous West End runs with plays including The Height of the Storm and The Father.
It also marks the Kiln Theatre’s first West End transfer since the venue reopened its door under is new name, having previously been named the Tricycle Theatre.
The Son tickets are available now.
