Florian Zeller’s acclaimed play ‘The Son‘ will transfer to London’s West End for a limited 10-week season at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
The five-star production transfers from a sold-out season at Kiln Theatre, where the cast included Amanda Abbington Sherlock, John Light North and South, Mary Stuart (West End), Laurie Kynaston Cradel to Grave, Derry Girls, The Ferryman (Gielgud Theatre), Oseloka Obi Timbuktu (Theatre Royal Stratford East), Amaka Okafor Hamlet (Almeida Theatre) and Martin Turner A Very English Murder, Medea (National Theatre). Casting for the West End transfer is to be announced.
The Son forms the final part of the critically acclaimed trilogy with The Father and The Mother and is an exploration of family dynamics, charting the upheaval of divorce, adolescence and teen depression.
Written by the internationally acclaimed French playwright Florian Zeller, lauded by The Guardian as ‘the most exciting playwright of our time’, the play is translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by the award-winning Michael Longhurst.
The Son is booking from 24 August until 2 November 2019 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London.
