Florian Zeller’s The Son will transfer to the West End
Florian Zeller’s The Son will transfer to the West End following the success of its UK premiere at Kiln Theatre.
It follows Zeller’s critically acclaimed plays The Father, The Mother, The Truth, The Lie, and The Height of the Storm.
The Son transfers to London’s Duke of York’s Theatre, running from 24 August – 2 November 2019.
When a family starts to crumble the son begins to spiral. Nicholas has been ditching school, lying to his family and hiding strange things under his bed. Is this typical adolescent rebellion or do his actions point to something his family should be more worried about?
Nicholas thinks moving in with his father and his new family might be the fresh start he needs. When that doesn’t work out he decides that moving back to his mother’s might be the answer. If changing feels like the only way to survive, what will he do when he runs out of changes?
