The Mother
Anne loved the time in her life when she prepared breakfast each morning for her two young children. Years later, spending hours alone, Anne convinces herself that her husband is having an affair. If only her son were to break-up with his girlfriend. He would return home and come down for breakfast. She would put on her new red dress and they would go out.

The Mother, in this English translation by Christopher Hampton, was commissioned by the Ustinov Studio, Theatre Royal, Bath, and premiered in May 2015. Florian Zeller's The Mother was awarded the Moliere Award for Best Play 2011.

'One of the most acute, absorbing and distressing portraits of dementia I've ever seen.' Daily Telegraph

'A play that constantly confounds expectations and works almost like a thriller, with a sinister Pinteresque edge.' Guardian
