About The Son West End play

The Son is the first Kiln Theatre production to transfer to London's West End since the venue reopened last September. It is produced by Fiery Angel and Gavin Kalin Productions.

The play is written by world-renowned playwright Florian Zeller, whom The Guardian referred to as "the most exciting playwright of our time." It completes Zeller's acclaimed family trilogy, which is comprised of two previous instalments entitled The Father and The Mother. Though it's not necessary to have seen them beforehand in order to enjoy The Son play. 

Florian Zeller's The Son play synopsis

I swear. I have no idea what's happening to me.

Nicolas is struggling with the aftermath of his parents' separation. He plays truant, lies, and thinks living with his father and his new family might help. He just wants a clean slate. A tabula rasa. But when he doesn't seem to get along there either, he thinks moving back in with his mother might help. But when playing ping pong between the two parents seems like the only solution to his problems, what will he do when he runs out of options?
