A touching, funny and deeply unsettling mystery

Florian Zeller’s 'The Father' was a hit in France before Christopher Hampton translated it into English and repeated the success and critical acclaim in London and New York.

There’s definitely something fishy going on. You can’t fool André, and while he may be eighty years old and apt, on occasion, to forget things, they are only ever small things. Such as where he’s put his watch. It doesn’t explain why people are messing around with things in his flat, and why his daughter keeps contradicting herself. And it doesn’t explain why she allows strangers to come in and threaten him. No, something’s going on and he’ll get to the bottom of it
