THE FATHER - M3,F3

"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
