An Award-winning play makes a comeback
When illusions and memories are woven into filial bonds, should one let go?

As her elderly father gradually loses his ability to live independently, Anne moves him in to live with her and her boyfriend, tending to his daily necessities. Her father, suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, vacillates between a humorous disposition and states of confusion. “Reality” gradually dissolves in his mind, challenging their father-daughter relationship. Shouldering filial love and her responsibility to family, Anne is under tremendous pressure to make the “appropriate” decision. Can her father regain control of his own spirit and decide his own fate at the last moments of his life?

Le Père is the work of one of France’s most popular young playwrights, Florian Zeller, and winner of the 2014 Molière Award for Best Play. Its Hong Kong premiere in 2017 enjoyed a 14-performance sold-out run with the production garnering four accolades at the 27th Hong Kong Drama Awards for Best Director (Tragedy/Drama), Best Actor (Tragedy/Drama), Best Lighting Design, as well as Outstanding Production of the Year. Director Laureate Fredric Mao reprises the title role, joined by original cast members Pang Hang Ying and Alice Lau with HKRep’s illustrious ensemble, summoning this intense work of drama onto the stage once more.
