Candid and humanizing, The Father is a deeply affecting look at the realities of living with Alzheimer’s and being cared for by loved ones who are becoming unrecognizable.

One of the most acute, absorbing and distressing portraits of dementia I’ve ever seen

It’s a play that constantly confounds expectations and works almost like a thriller, with a sinister Pinteresque edge...

- The Guardian
