presented by UCC Dramat
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.
Running from Wednesday 14th to Saturday 17th November. Tickets cost €10 or €8 (Full Price / Concession).
