Playwright: By Florian Zeller, in a new translation by Christopher Hampton


Anne loved that time in her life when she prepared breakfast each morning for her two young children, Sara and Nicholas. Now her children are grown and have lives and loves of their own. Spending hours alone, Anne broods upon the actions of her husband and longs for the return of her favoured son.

Molière Award-winning playwright Florian Zeller returns to the Tricycle following 2015’s critically-acclaimed sell-out run of The Father with this compelling show starring the BAFTA Award-winning and Olivier nominated actress Gina McKee.

‘Gina McKee… an expertly whisked blend of surface ice and latent fire… Highly recommended’ - The Daily Telegraph
