A major production of Florian Zeller's play The Son in London for a strictly limited season
After his parent's divorce, Nicolas starts to going through a difficult phase. He's listless, skipping school, lying and thinks that moving in with his father and his new family may help give him a 'fresh start'. But when he doesn't settle there, he decides that going back to his motherís may be the answer. When change feels like the only way to survive, what will he do when the options begin to run out?
Translated by Christopher Hampton, this production transfers to London's West End following an acclaimed season at the Kiln Theatre in North-West London earlier this year.
The cast at the Duke of York's Theatre features Laurie Kynaston as the son 'Nicolas', John Light as the father 'Pierre', and Amanda Abbington as the mother 'Anne', with Amaka Okafor as 'Sofia'. Directed by Michael Longhurst with designs by Lizzie Clachan, lighting by Lee Curran, and music and sound by Isobel Waller-Bridge.
Florian Zeller's London plays include The Height of the Storm directed by Jonathan Kent and starring Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins at the Wyndham's Theatre in 2018; The Truth directed by Lindsay Posner and starring Alexander Hanson and Frances O'Connor at the Wyndham's Theatre in 2016; The Father directed by James Macdonald and starring Kenneth Cranham in the title role at the Wyndham's Theatre in 2015 and at the Duke of York's Theatre in 2016; and The Mother directed by Laurence Boswell and starring Gina McKee in the title role at the Tricycle Theatre (now Kiln Theatre) in 2016. All of Florian Zeller's London plays have been translated by Christopher Hampton.
This production was previously seen at the Kiln Theatre (previewed from 20 February 2019, opened on 26 February 2019, and closed on 6 Apr 2019) with a cast that featured Laurie Kynaston as the son 'Nicolas', John Light as the father 'Pierre', and Amanda Abbington as the mother 'Anne', with Amaka Okafor as 'Sofia', Oseloka Obi as 'Nurse', and Martin Turner as 'Doctor'.
The Son in London at the Duke of York's Theatre public previews from 24 August 2019, opens on 2 September 2019, and closes on 2 November 2019
