Synopsis


"Would you please remember that it's not us they're assessing."


She's been disruptive in class.


She's rude to the teachers.


And now she wants to learn the trumpet.


But whose performance is really being judged?


A mother and father prepare to discuss their daughter's progress at the local primary school, but their rare opportunity for some quality time together begins to test the bonds of love, work and family.


Charged, passionate and surprising, Parents' Evening is a fierce and funny play about modern marriage and parenthood.


This European premiere marks the homecoming of a major British talent already acclaimed in America.
