Transferring to the West End after a sold-out season at the Kiln Theatre, Florian Zeller's play The Son will play a ten week season at the Duke of York's theatre from 24 August to 2 November 2019.

Tickets are now on sale from £20 here.

Internationally acclaimed playwright Florian Zeller has been described by The Guardian as 'the most exciting playwright of our time'.

Translated by Christopher Hampton, The Son is directed by the award-winning Michael Longhurst and forms the final part of the critically acclaimed trilogy with the playwright's other plays The Father and The Mother.


I'm telling you.

I don't understand what's happening to me.

Nicolas is going through a difficult phase after his parents' divorce.

He's listless, skipping school, lying and thinks that moving in with his father and his new family may help.

A fresh start.

When he doesn't settle there either, he decides that going back to his mother's may be the answer.

When change feels like the only way to survive, what will he do when the options begin to run out?
