The Father

March-April 2023

by Christopher Hampton) that will have you both laughing and crying.
Eighty-year-old Andrew was once a tap dancer who now lives with his daughter Anne and her
husband in Wellington. Or, was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives with her new lover, Peter,
in Auckland? Who are these strange people who appear in HIS apartment? Why on earth does his
furniture keep disappearing? Why does his daughter keep trying to foist a ‘helper’ on him – he
doesn’t need anyone and he’s NOT going to give up his flat – he’ll outlive everyone!
This extraordinary play gives audiences an insight into the mind of someone with dementia and it
does so with humour and sometimes brutal honesty. A must see.
