San Diego audiences will be treated to a play that the London Telegraph called “an unqualified triumph” as North Coast Rep stages the West Coast premiere of THE FATHER. A sensation in Paris, London and New York, and honored with a war chest of awards including a Tony nomination for Best Play, THE FATHER promises to be a profoundly moving, memorable evening of theatre. Andre, now 80 years old, was once a tap dancer who lives with his daughter Anne and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pajamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control. This is must-see theatre for the discerning theatre-goer.
