Why See The Mother?
Florian Zeller's Reality Bending Drama
A companion piece to the multi award-winning West End and Broadway triumph The Father, French playwright Florian Zeller's The Mother received rave reviews for its stark portrayal of depression and empty-nest syndrome during its London run in 2015. Now the fascinating drama enjoys its US, Off-Broadway debut as part of the American Theater Company's groundbreaking new 2018/19 season.
Directed by OBIE Award winner Trip Cullman, The Mother stars Academy Award nominated actress Isabelle Huppert as Anne, a mother whose mind starts to crack when her son leaves home and she believes her husband is having an affair. Zeller creates a surreal atmosphere with repeated scenes rewritten with slight differences, forcing the audience to question what they see and doubt Anne's sanity and trustworthiness as a reliable narrator.
Opening night: 20 February 2019
