French writer Florian Zeller’s THE FATHER, winner of the 2014 Molière Award for France’s Best Play, is arguable the greatest play ever written about dementia, regularly garnering awards for the playwright and its leading men in countless international productions that span the globe from the UK to South Africa, and across the United States to Singapore. In 2016 THE FATHER was nominated for the Tony Award for Best New Play and Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, which was awarded to Frank Langella for his disorienting performance of a man in mental decline.

Savagely honest and softly humorous, a daughter becomes caregiver to her demanding father who exists in his own lonely and frightening world. Candid and humanizing, THE FATHER is a deeply affecting look at the realities of living with Alzheimer’s and being cared for by loved ones who are becoming increasingly unrecognizable.
