Actor's Theatre Playhouse digs deep

Presenting "The Father" through October 13th
Chesterfield, NH

For 90 minutes, this play holds up a mirror to the process of growing old, a universal experience that is different for everyone. Playwright Florian Zeller uses dramatic structure to mimic the state of a mind deteriorating through dementia. Each scene is an elliptical extended snapshot that seems to evoke a memory, but quickly the absurdist contradictions crowd in.
