THE FATHER

The Father is a poignant and devastating family drama exploring a 70-year-old man’s deteriorating mind as he battles with dementia. The audience walks in André’s shoes as his mind slowly unravels, and his perception of reality and sanctuary start to warp and crumble. This thought-provoking work unfolds with gripping suspense, and brutal honesty, and hopes to give voice to those suffering from dementia, as well as their caregivers.
