See The Son at the Duke of Yorks Theatre

Get tickets to see The Son, the hottest new play from Florian Zeller on the West End. "I'm telling you. I don't understand what's happening to me". Nicolas has been having a troubled time since his parents divorce. He's listless, skipping school, lying and thinks that moving in with his father and his new family may help. A fresh start, perhaps. However, things don't go to plan and Nicolas is left feeling unsettled in his new family life. Instead, Nicolas tries to return to his mother's, hoping that it may bring the satisfaction he's seeking. But when change feels like the only way to survive, what will he do when options begin to run out? The critically acclaimed finale to Parisian playwright Zeller's trilogy has arrived at the Duke of York's Theatre. The Son, straight from a sold-out season at Kiln Theatre, is due to close Zeller's beloved trilogy. It follows on from The Father and the The Mother, two of his most successful plays. The Father debuted in 2012 as Le Père, a black comedy in Paris. The play premiered at the Theatre Royale in Bath, moving to Wyndham's Theatre on the West End where critics sang it's praises as one of the Best Plays of the Year. Now, The Son is set to do the same with tickets selling fast. Amanda Abbington, known for BBC's Sherlock and Safe, will star as Anne, Nicolas' mother. Laurie Kynaston will be portraying the troubled teen Nicolas, her previous roles including The Ferryman at the Gielgud Theatre. Playing his father Pierre will be John Light. In the past, Light has appeared in Mary Stuart, A Midsummer's Night's Dream (Shakespeare's Globe) and True West. Finally, Amaka Okafor will star as Sofia, Pierre's new partner following her time in I'm Not Running and Macbeth. Christopher Hampton has lovingly translated the play from it's original French. Hampton also provided the official translations for The Father and The Mother. He's won an Academy Award for the Best Adapted Screenplay, and has been nominated again for adapting Ian McEwan's novel Atonement. At the helm of The Son will be Michael Longhurst, who was recently appointed Artistic Director at the Donmar Warehouse. Previously, Longhurst has directed the recent revival of Caroline or Change, as well as Constellations on both the West End and Broadway, the latter of which starred Jake Gyllenhaal. The Son is due for a strictly limited season of ten weeks from August 24. Make sure to grab tickets to see The Son before they sell out.
