André is losing his memory or is he losing his mind? Perhaps he’s just fine and it’s everybody else. Anyway, this is his story, he just can’t quite stick to the storyline. He’s pretty sure he lives in Paris with his daughter, Anne. Or does Anne live in London with her new husband? Where is his other daughter, his favourite daughter? Who is the man in the kitchen with the chicken?
Maybe Laura will be the angel who has come to save him. The Father is a tragi-comic journey into dementia through André’s eyes. An unforgettable portrait of memory loss that works almost like a thriller, with undeniably sinister undertones. This is a play that will keep you guessing long after you leave the theatre.
