Sydney Theatre Company - The Father by Florian Zeller
Pier 4, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay, NSW, 2000, Australia
19th August 2017 to 21st October 2017
A giant of Australian theatre for over 50 years, John Bell makes a very welcome return to the Sydney Theatre Company stage for The Father, an extraordinary new play which has captivated Paris, London and New York. Now 80 years old, André (John Bell) was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne (Anita Hegh) and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? Either way, he’s still wearing his pyjamas and he can’t find his watch. He’s starting to wonder if he’s losing control.
