Granary Theatre

The Father

'The Father' written by Florian Zeller deals with the problems and conflicts arising from Alzheimers and Dementia. It gives a unique perspective on the issue, telling the story from the viewpoint of the sufferer.

THE FATHER looks inside the mind of Andre, a retired dancer living with his adult daughter Anne and her husband. Or is he a retired engineer receiving a visit from Anne who has moved away with her boyfriend? Why do strangers keep turning up in his room? And where has he left his watch? In a darkly humorous and deeply poignant translation by Christopher Hampton, Florian Zeller’s THE FATHER is a tragi-comic mystery, a sobering and realistic family drama, and an unsentimental, emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia, a dramatic illustration of the physical losses which occur along with the mental ones.
