Florian Zeller's Hotly Anticipated Third Instalment

After her Olivier Award-winning, The Father and the critically acclaimed The Mother, Moliere Award-winner Florian Zeller returns to London with the latest offering to her trilogy, The Son. Directed by Michael Longhurst, The Son explores how one son copes with the break down of his family. Starring Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, Mr Selfridge, Being Human), Laurie Kynaston and John Light, The Son dives into themes of love, loss and mental illness.

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?
