Why See The Son?


West End Transfer

After a critically acclaimed run at the Kiln Theatre in North London in February, the Michael Longhurst directed production of The Son is heading to the West End. Amanda Abbington, Laurie Kynaston, and John Light return to reprise their roles in Zeller's third installment of the trilogy that also includes The Father and The Mother. 

What is the story?

As his family breaks down around him Nicolas can't cope. Beginning to skip school, lying to his family and hiding strange objects under his bed Nicholas is teetering too close to the edge, can his family rally together to bring their son back from the brink?
