The Father
Friday 16 June – Saturday 1 July 2017


The Father at Oldham Coliseum Theatre


"Don’t even think about missing this extraordinary play."
– The New York Observer




An Oldham Coliseum Theatre Production
By Florian Zeller

Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Kevin Shaw
Designed by Patrick Connellan 

The Father is a surprisingly funny and sometimes heart-breaking play that has captivated audiences in London, New York and Paris.

André is 80 years old. He had a wonderful career as a tap dancer and now lives with his daughter Anne and her husband Antoine in Paris. Or was he once an engineer whose daughter Anne now lives in London with her new partner, Pierre? The thing is he can’t quite remember, and he can’t find his watch…

Taking the audience on a journey through André’s perspective, The Father portrays the impact of dementia on one man and the people in his life. 



The Father won the Molière Award, Frances most prestigious theatre award, plus a clutch of awards on New York’s Broadway and London’s West End and was The Guardian‘s Pick of the Year.  

Starring actor, director and twice former Artistic Director of the Coliseum, Kenneth Alan Taylor, who at 80 years old delivers a tour de force performance, The Father makes its North West premiere at Oldham Coliseum Theatre.
