Winner of France's highest drama accolade and given 10 five-star reviews from major critics, The Father - A Tragic Farce has been hailed as "The most acclaimed new play of the decade"

Now eighty years old, Andre was once a tap dancer

He lives with his daughter Anne and her husband Antoine

Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre?

The thing is, he is still wearing his pyjamas

And he can’t find his watch

And he's starting to wonder if he’s losing control…
