Kenneth Cranham returns to The Father - Duke of York's
Kenneth Cranham will reprise the role of 'Andre' in this successful production, with a full cast to be announced.
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.
Florian Zeller is one of France’s most well-known contemporary playwrights. His 2010 play The Mother was the winner of the Moliere Award, France’s highest theatrical honour, and is set to open at the Tricycle Theatre later this month.
Tickets for the return West End engagement of The Father are now on sale.
