André has lost his beloved watch again. His daughter and her husband are behaving very oddly. There is an unseen presence in his home playing cruel tricks on him.
The Father is a theatrically thrilling exploration of a 70-year-old man’s deteriorating mind as he sinks under the frightening weight of dementia. The audience walks in André’s shoes as his perception of the world around him starts to warp and crumble. Part family drama and part mind-bending puzzle, The Father is told with gripping suspense and brutal honesty as it illustrates who André becomes as his mental faculties start to fracture.
Starring Lim Kay Siu, Tan Kheng Hua, Janice Koh, Frances Lee, Emil Marwa and Keagan Kang, and directed by Tracie Pang.
Winner of the Moliere Award, France’s most prestigious honour for a new work of theatre and nominated for Best Play at the Olivier and Tony Awards, The Father is an ingenious and harrowing drama that’s not to be missed.
