About The Son

After a critically-acclaimed run at the Kiln Theatre earlier this year, The Son will transfer to the Duke of York’s Theatre in August 2019. Issues of belonging and adolescence are challenged, as Nicolas faces up to his parents’ divorce in a harrowing play. Following previous productions of The Father and The Mother, The Son completes a trilogy of plays by the award-winning laureate Florian Zeller, as family dynamics are tested and relationships are pushed to the limit.

WHO’S IN IT?: THE SON CAST

Laurie Kynaston will reprise his role as Nicolas, previously starring in The Ferryman at the Gielgud Theatre. Amanda Abbington will reprise her role as Anne, Nicolas' mother. Her theatre credits include Abigail's Party, The God of Carnage and God Bless this Child, with television credits including Sherlock and Mr Selfridge.

John Light, Amaka Okafor and Martin Turner will also star in the production, reprising their roles from the Kiln Theatre. They are joined by Cudjoe Asare.

What's the story?

Two years prior to the play’s setting, Nicolas was a carefree, content child. Now, he faces difficulty in his daily life after his parents’ divorce. Skipping classes and lying to friends and family, he feels torn between moving in with his father or living with his mother. Hiding strange objects underneath the mattress, his behaviour shows warning signs of hopelessness to those around him. But soon, Nicolas won’t be able to hide. What happens then? As Nicolas doesn’t fully understand the changes, it’s left to those around him to pick up the pieces.
